Sweetwater Mayor Manny Maroño recently presented an “Adonel Way” street sign to Luis Garcia, president of Adonel Concrete, for his exemplary dedication to the community and his longstanding commitment to the growth and prosperity of the city.
The street signs were planned for installation at the intersections of N.W. 14 St. and N. W. 25 Sts. at N. W. 110 Ave, flanking the Adonel Concrete headquarters at 2101 N.W. 110 Ave.
Maroño spotlighted Adonel Concrete to demonstrate how hard work and perseverance attains success, citing Garcia as the epitome of the American dream. A Nicaraguan immigrant, Garcia began his concrete business with one truck in 1984. Since then, Adonel Concrete has become the largest privately-owned concrete company in South Florida.
Adonel Concrete with more than 210 employees and 120 trucks currently operates 11 concrete plants including four in Miami-Dade County, one in Broward, two each in Palm Beach and St. Lucie Counties and two in Haiti where it expanded in 2010 to help in the country’s rebuilding.
