FUTURE LOOKS CERTAIN FOR COACH COMPANY
An established South Northamptonshire coach company has announced a management restructure and the introduction of a new business model which, it says, will safeguard the firm’s future.
Following rumours that Helmdon-based Jeffs Coaches was facing potential closure, newly-appointed managing director Sarah Bayliss issued a clear statement on Tuesday confirming the company, which is owned by the Bowen Travel group, will continue trading with the retention of its 35 employees.
She said: ”We were looking to diversify and we offered a part of the business for sale, but people got the wrong end of the stick and a lot of people assumed we were about out to go bust.”
She added: ”All we were really doing was having an internal review, which is important to do quite often in the current economic climate. We’ve been here since 1956 and we’re looking forward to the future.
