Recently, the Clearfield-Jefferson Counties Airport Authority approved the purchase of a front-end loader for the DuBois Regional Airport.

Using the benefits of their COSTARS membership and COSTARS-authorized contracts, they located one that is American-made which was important criteria in their search. According to #airport manager, Bob Shaffer, the COSTARS pricing for this equipment was the most affordable price he found. 🛫

This purchase is intended to replace a 50-year-old backhoe that is becoming difficult to maintain, and the new front-loader will provide runway and roadway safety through salt and anti-skid disbursement.
