ADAMS CENTER, NY, USA – HL Gulf, LLC, a global leader in airfield safety formerly known as Hi-Lite, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Skidabrader Group, LLC to expand their services to include pavement texturing for runways in the Middle East.

“Combining the hundreds of years knowledge related to airport and roadway substrates, texturing, and markets, this new partnership will allow owners and customers to access the world’s best technologies and the world’s best technicians. We are very excited to expand our operations outside of North America with HL Gulf in the Middle East” Stated Stephen Klugherz, President of the Skidabrader Group, LLC.

The 1000-horsepower Skidabrader is being shipped to the region and will quickly transform runways and highways into a safer environment. The machine can quickly transform slick pavement into a surface that resists skidding and hydroplaning and helps to prevent roadway departures.
