Transportation company launches sanitizing business

A transportation company in York County has launched a sister company that offers sanitizing services.

Business for Bailey Coach, a motorcoach company that is owned by The Bailey Family of Companies, came to a halt in March due to COVID-19. Bailey Coach then began offering sanitizing service to businesses, something that it had already been doing for its 30-vehicle fleet of 55 passenger motorcoaches, vans, sedans and SUVs. It now provide the services for both vehicles and building space that are located within two hours of York.

As the sanitizing services portion of the business began to grow, John Bailey and his daughter Courtney Bailey launched Bailey’s Zero Hazard, which is branded after the product that the company uses to disinfect vehicles. The company also offers fogging equipment and Zero Hazard, the cleaning product, for purchase. Bailey’s Zero Hazard also provides emergency response service to COVID-19 outbreaks and operates 24 hours a day.

Bailey Coach has lost nearly 70% of annual revenue due to the impact of COVID-19, the company said in a press release. But, due to the new business venture, the company said it was able to bring back 26 of its 56 employees that were laid off due to COVID-19.

The Bailey Family of Companies is located at 1708 Route 116 in Jackson Township, York County.

“The Baileys feel extremely blessed to have this opportunity with Bailey’s Zero Hazard, as it has helped keep their employees working and the doors of this 20-year-old business from closing,” the company said in the press release.
