Fox Group is investing in specialist equipment and chemicals to help protect essential services and businesses in the fight against Covid-19.
The Hessle firm has adapted vans normally used for more routine cleaning tasks to transport and dispense sodium hypochlorite to the external areas of prominent sites in the region.
The company is also collaborating with a partner which specialises in cleaning internal areas by applying an anti-viral mist also in use on London’s tube network.
Managing director Andrew Fox said: “We are looking forward to going back to our normal day-to-day work but we don’t know when we will be able to do that so in the meantime we want to do something that will benefit areas which need these specialist sanitation services.
"We have a national support network and we have the materials, equipment and manpower to provide the services.”
Fox Group employs around 120 people with key clients working in food production and processing and major food distribution and retail. The firm also cleans sport and business venues, apartments, office blocks and restaurants, working directly for clients and through property agents.
