MITIE LINKS WITH CONNECT GROUP TO WIN NEW DEAL WORTH £7.5M

11 February 2019 | Herpreet Kaur Grewal


Mitie has won a five-year integrated facilities management contract with specialist distribution and logistics company Connect Group.

 

Mitie will manage services including engineering, cleaning, security, reception and landscaping across 78 distribution centres and its headquarters in Swindon, Wiltshire.

 

The new relationship will bring all Connect Group’s FM services together, replacing the existing local level arrangements.

 

Connect Group, which operates under the brands Smiths News and Tuffnells, chose to consolidate its supplier relationships with Mitie to simplify its working practices and to achieve cost savings.

 

Mitie will deploy new technology as part of the contract including its Direct Audits system that will aim to “enhance the delivery of engineering service" and is "designed to keep a close check on the condition of assets, it also enables easy day-to-day monitoring, as well as supporting long-term investment decisions".

 

Connect Group will also be using Mitie’s remote security centre MiTec, to ensure that its properties’ security systems are overseen 24/7.

 

Operating from Northern Ireland, MiTec will essentially offer an intruder and fire alarm monitoring service.
