Leonora Foddrill, CEO of Foddrill Construction Corp, received the coveted NLBWA-IE’s 2018 Latina Business Owner of The Year Award. Based in Chino, California, Foddrill Construction Corporation is an industry leader in the installation and maintenance of street lighting systems across Southern California. Since 1993, the company, founded by Leonora, has provided customers such as Southern California Edison and major cities in the region with street lighting systems, decorative lighting systems, LED conversions, antenna poles, walkway and park lighting, and commercial and industrial lighting systems. With plans to grow 40 to 50 percent over the next few years, Foddrill has a bright future ahead and it could be the next IE company to go big!
