SUCKER GARDEN–St. Maarten Concrete has added five state-of-the-art diesel-powered Mack concrete mixer trucks to its fleet.
During a special ceremony to introduce the trucks held at the company’s location in Sucker Garden on Friday, management and staff also showcased its Line Pump truck, which is the only one of its kind on St. Maarten. This addition of the trucks is a symbol of St. Maarten Concrete’s commitment to the economic revitalisation and sustainable redevelopment of St. Maarten the company’s General Manager Kenecia David was quoted as saying in a press release on Sunday.
St. Maarten Concrete will deploy its line of trucks, which includes 15 concrete mixer trucks, five pump trucks, and one line pump. The company’s goal with the additional trucks is to improve its efficiency, amongst other things. The new vehicles feature Mack’s new interior designs, as well as new flat bottom steel wheels.

Minister of Tourism, Economic Affairs, Traffic and Telecommunication TEATT Stuart Johnson, who attended the ceremony, told the invited guests during a brief address that the investments made by St. Maarten Concrete, solidifies his belief that “our destination is primed for investments … It also shows how much can be done in Sucker Garden when a company such as St. Maarten Concrete could take up roots here and grow.”
Johnson congratulated the David family for their hard work and achievement and thanked them for showing such commitment to the economic revitalisation of St. Maarten.
During her address David said the company will soon launch a new website in keeping with its push to become more technologically advanced. As the world of concrete supply is becoming more heavily reliant on technology, St. Maarten Concrete intends to be innovators in the integration of Information Technology (IT) service in concrete delivery, to improve productivity for customers. “Our customers must know how much we value their time, loyalty and business,” David said.
David, a graduate of Florida State University who holds degrees in finance and marketing, has taken on the task of improving on her father Franklyn David’s dream operation, which he built from the ground starting in 2009. “St. Maarten Concrete will create an environment in which customers can request services with little to no effort on their part. They will be able to do so from the comfort of their homes and continue to receive the guarantees of quality products and timely service delivery every time,” David said.
St. Maarten Concrete’s customers will also soon be able to view delivery times online and view their order history. With online booking will come the ability to schedule times for delivery as well as to make online payments.
David said creating a fully integrated IT system, will make doing business easy for many, as it will give them the time and flexibility they need to continue doing what they do rather than being stuck in traffic trying to get to their office. She said St. Maarten Concrete is focussed on its guarantee of customer satisfaction, and will continue to engage existing and prospective customers, large and small and listen to their feedback.
David and her father thanked their staff of over 30 and customers who “put their trust” in St. Maarten Concrete.
