The City of Sweetwater recently unveiled new street signs at the intersections of NW 14th Street and 25th Street along NW 110th Avenue in recognition of Adonel Concrete’s longstanding commitment to the growth and prosperity of the city. The street signs flank Adonel Concrete’s headquarters at 2101 NW 110 Ave.
City of Sweetwater commissioners unanimously passed a resolution in June to name the intersections “Adonel Way.” Mayor Manny Maroño wanted to spotlight Adonel Concrete to show others that through hard work and perseverance one can attain success.
“[Luis] Garcia is the epitome of the American dream,” Mayor Maroño said. “A Nicaraguan immigrant, Garcia began his concrete business with one truck in 1984 and today has seen it grow to become the largest privately owned concrete company in South Florida. What better example for those aspiring to attain business success than Luis.”
Adonel Concrete currently has a total of 11 concrete plants — four in Miami-Dade County, one in Broward County, two in Palm Beach County, two in St. Lucie County and two in Haiti. It has more than 210 employees and a fleet of 120 trucks. In 2010, the company expanded into Haiti to help in the rebuilding.
