Adonel Concrete, headquarted in Miami-Dade County, has opened two new plants in Fort Pierce that the company says will allow it to better serve Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties.

The expansion into the Treasure Coast follows the company’s 2006 move of adding plants in Palm Beach County.

“Our company is now able to meet future demands in this growing area,” Adonel President Luis Garcia said in a statement. “We are optimistic about the future, and these new plants enable us to serve a broader area while utilizing trucks and staff that are based in West Palm Beach.”

The new Fort Pierce plants are situated on 10 acres near Florida’s Turnpike and are capable of producing 400 cubic yards of concrete an hour. Adonel, which is South Florida’s largest privately owned concrete company, will assign 30 trucks to the Fort Pierce operations.
