Plaque given by Strategic Comp to mark occasion

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — For the second time in three years, Bates Troy Inc. was awarded for achieving a year without a lost-time incident at its plant and stores, the company reports.  

Jeanette Kinsella, senior loss prevention consultant for the Syracuse office of Strategic Comp, a division of Great American Insurance that deals in workers’ comp, visited Bates Troy’s plant to present a commemorative plaque. 

Kinsella pointed out that Strategic Comp does not hand out many of these awards each year. 

The one-year mark was actually reached before Christmas, but due to scheduling issues, the presentation didn’t take place until April, so Bates Troy says it is currently at about 17 months without a lost-time incident.  

Bates Troy is a family-owned and -operated healthcare linen service, dry cleaning and tailoring, and fire and water restoration company that has been serving New York’s Southern Tier, Central New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania for more than 85 years.

The company says it takes pride in its safety accomplishment, as it illustrates the importance placed on employee safety and the success of long-term policies, training and efforts to maintain a safe working environment.

About 110 people are employed at the company’s plant and three retail dry cleaning stores.
