LAWRENCE - Rafael D. Guzman says he is an immigrant who has fulfilled the American dream.
Guzman came to Lawrence from the Dominican Republic at age 15 in 1981, and after graduating from Lawrence High School, he earned a degree in electrical and computer engineering with high honors from University of Massachusetts in Amherst.
Today, he owns two commercial buildings and has renovated 225 Essex St., the former WCCM radio station building on Franklin St. and the former Arlington Mill.
On May 8, Guzman received the 2013 Immigrant Entrepreneur Award for Business Growth from The Immigrant Learning Center Inc.

"What a beautiful country we live in," Guzman said in his acceptance speech during the dinner at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge. "Not only does one get a real opportunity to succeed, but you can also get an award for your success."
He was one of three local business people nominated.
...
Guzman was flanked by his parents, Rafael and Luz; sons, Rafael, Benny and Javier and several of his staff members.
The youngest Rafael Guzman said he was impressed by his father's speech.
"It touched me when he spoke about passing on education to better your future. My dad taught me that with hard work, perseverance and belief in yourself, anything is possible," Guzman, 21, said.
Guzman purchased Malden Mills at 530 Broadway last December for $950,000 in partnership with the Lawrence Training School, which provides education for those seeking employment opportunities. Guzman and the training school spent $600,000 renovating the first two floors of the building.
...
After years working at the former Honeywell, Guzman decided to become his own boss in the pursuit of financial independence.
Guzman, 46, started Flexible Workforce, an environmental temporary employment agency in 1994. One of its clients was RM Technologies and its owner wanted to sell the company. Guzman jumped at the chance and buy it.
"I'm glad I did because since then the company has grown and I've been able to acquire other financial interests all related to general contracting and I've been able to help others get jobs," he said.
Guzman credits much of his success to his parents. In their native country, his father, also named Rafael, was a taxi driver and his mother, Chichi, raised their seven children. In Lawrence the oldest Guzman worked at Grieco Brothers and his mother at Oomphies Shoes. They were later both employed at Gillette in Andover, before they retired.
"I was also persistent, worked hard and had the drive to do better to achieve my goal of financial independence," Guzman said. "I did not want to worry where the money to pay bills would come from and I wanted to provide my children with things I was not able to get at that age."
After college, Guzman said, there was no place he wanted to work and invest in but Lawrence.
"I wanted to be an example for others to follow. I wanted to prove that you can make it in Lawrence," Guzman said.
"Lawrence is a city full of great people and being so small you know everyone and feel like you're part of the family anywhere you go," he said.
"So you see the American dream is alive," Guzman said. "It's here for us to reach in this great nation. Education is at its center and I couldn't stress more how important it is for all of us to educate others and ourselves so we can build healthier and stronger communities all throughout the country."
Guzman said it's important to give back to the community from which he has received. Last year, he established the RM Technology Scholarship for $5,000 at his alma mater to help aspiring engineers with their education.

Guzman plays on the Lawrence Pirates team which have won the championship the past two years. In addition to helping community organizations, he's also involved in politics, supporting State Rep.

Rafael Guzman When Guzman bought RM Technologies, Inc. in 1997, the small demolition and environmental remediation firm had only three office staff and was making $800,000 a year. He turned it into an expanded business employing more than 200 people with 45 percent revenue growth over the last three years.
In his remarks, Guzman stressed the importance of education. He has a master's in manufacturing engineering, and he thanked the American people for the assistance he received to make this education possible. He framed his company's explosive growth as a way of giving back saying, "My company last year paid over $3 million in salaries and wages to 172 employees. I'm happy to report that this year we project to pay over $5 million to over 250 people, mostly immigrants from the city of Lawrence, the poorest city in the Commonwealth. The American dream is alive and kicking very much. It's here for most of us to reach in this great nation."
In addition to job creation, Guzman gives back to his community by sponsoring Lawrence film festivals, book fairs and baseball teams, and he established a scholarship for underprivileged children like himself who want to study engineering.
