Jefferson County employer Hi-Lite to create new jobs with USDA loan
A Jefferson County company is planning to expand with the help of a loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Hi-Lite Airfield Services, in Adams Center, plans to create between eight and 10 new jobs, according to a news release from Rep. Bill Owens’s (D-Plattsburgh) office. The company also plans to buy new equipment with the $7.1 million loan from the USDA’s Rural Development program.
Hi-Lite provides services for maintaining airport runways, including markings and pavement treatments. It’s the industry leader in North America. It began as a highway-striping company in 1989, according to its website.
