Raymond C. Suiter Bio

Raymond C. Suiter founded Canaan Decorating in 1978 in Hawaii and guided the company’s evolution into Canaan Construction and Design as a general contractor. Raymond is a second generation home builder that decided to pursue a career in chemical engineering and obtained his PhD in that field. However, after several years, decided that his work passion was still in construction and he moved to Hawaii and established Canaan. After many years of performing both custom luxury home building and commercial construction and remodeling projects, Mr. Suiter decided to leave Hawaii and pursue other interests. He sold Canaan and moved to the mainland. However, in 2014, with persuasion from his sons, he decided to return to Hawaii and rebuild Canaan in a completely new entity, Canaan Builders LLC. He established Canaan Builders LLC with the help and assistance of his son, Raymond T. Suiter, with a renewed vision to build the new entity and establish it along the lines of the philosophy of the original Canaan. Mr. Suiter has build projects in a wide array of venues from luxury condos and high end custom homes and ranch complexes on the mainland, to impressive commercial projects.
