Adonel Concrete opened its second concrete block plant in West Palm Beach, doubling its production capacity there to 60,000 blocks a day.
Adonel opened its first block plant in West Palm Beach six months ago. The two plants have a total of 50 employees.
“The need to expand our operations in such a short period of time is a strong indicator that real estate projects in such areas as Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties are increasing,” said Luis Garcia, president and CEO, in a press release.
In addition to its West Palm Beach plants making concrete blocks, Adonel has 15 plants producing concrete at locations in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Fort Pierce. Adonel also has three plants in Haiti.
Founded in 1984 by Garcia, the company has more than 250 employees. Adonel, which calls itself the largest privately owned concrete producer in South Florida, also has a fleet of 180 trucks.
