RED COATS, INC. was founded in 1960 by current Vice Chairman William F. Peel, and President Barbara K. Peel. Corporate headquarters are in our own mid-rise office building in Bethesda , Maryland , with regional branch offices in Baltimore , Florida , and Virginia. Under the leadership of the Executive Vice President, W. Mack Wells, Red Coats, Inc. consistently maintains the leadership of the custodial service industry throughout the mid-Atlantic and Florida regions.
From our beginnings in 1960, with several small accounts and a staff of only twelve employees, Red Coats, Inc. has grown to now provide professional custodial services to approximately 50,000,000 square feet of residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional space on a daily basis. To accomplish the services required by our extensive and varied portfolio of customers, our staff has now grown in excess of 4,000 well-trained, personnel. The corporation also maintains affiliate companies providing security and other property management related services. Our professional services have assisted our customers in areas such as maintaining institutional accreditation and achieving numerous quality awards, including several Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) Building of the Year awards. Red Coats is committed to increasing levels of professional quality in our industry, and is active in many trade organizations toward this purpose.
Our continued growth in all of our regions is a direct result of our corporate philosophy originally set forth by our founders, William F. and Barbara K. Peel, over 40 years ago to "provide our customers the standard of service desired at the fairest possible price, to ensure the continuation of our reputation for quality." To accomplish this goal, we have always recognized quality, well-trained supervision at all levels as the key ingredient for success. Our operations management staff, as well as our account managers and building supervisors, attend industry seminars and clinics to improve their supervisory and technical skills. All supervisory personnel are continually monitored and evaluated with consistent, quality oriented performance as the ultimate goal.
Red Coats' top management is not only active in the regions we service, but is committed to continuing our reputation for quality service by ensuring the controlled growth desired. – less–ZoomInfo
