In October 2010 Betonex – Haiti’s leading concrete provider led by Stephane LeRouge – and Adonel Concrete – South Florida’s largest privately-owned concrete company led by Luis Garcia – announced they had merged to create Adonel-Betonex.
Following the aftermath of the January 12, 2010 earthquake it was clear Haiti’s construction industry was in need of a new foundation. Mixing expertise and resources from both, the two companies determined that they could best fill the position and help Haiti recover from the terrible damage by working together.
Adonel-Betonex hopes to more quickly rebuild earthquake-damaged portions of Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas by providing non-governmental organizations, private investors and government agencies the perfect mix of quality, technicality, professionalism and express service.

WHILE Stephan Lerouge was studying in Canada for his master’s degree in construction project management, he wrote a feasibility study on how to set up a ready-mix concrete plant. Little did he know then that just two years later he’d be road-testing that plan in reality.
However, when he returned home to Haiti in 2005, that’s exactly what happened. His family, already in the construction industry, gave him a piece of land as collateral for a $300,000 bank loan, and he opened the doors of Betonex in 2007 with three concrete mixer trucks, an aged concrete pump, and a lot of determination – even down to handing out fliers in the streets.
Lerouge’s determination paid dividends. But it was his meeting with Luis Garcia, founder of Adonel Concrete, the largest independently owned concrete company in South Florida, which led to the real transformation – a merger in October 2010 to create Adonel-Betonex, a new force in the Haitian construction business.
Lerouge recalls telling Garcia during the negotiations: “It’s not what I’ve built so far – it’s who I am in this sector in Haiti.”
Today, Lerouge is company President and Garcia CEO, and the business has three concrete plants, 30 mixer trucks, three concrete pumps and a dynamic staff of 45. “Being in the concrete business, my commitment is to give solid and lasting foundations to a new Haiti”, he smiles.
