Mitie links with Connect Group in £7.5m deal

Mitie has secured a five-year integrated facilities management contract, worth £7.5 million with specialist distribution and logistics company Connect Group.

The deal will see Mitie manage a host of 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 working practices and to achieve cost savings.

Mitie will deploy new technology as part of the contract. Its Direct Audits system will be used to enhance the delivery of engineering service. 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 taking advantage of Mitie’s remote security centre MiTec, to ensure its properties’ security systems are overseen 24/7.

Carlo Alloni, Managing Director, Mitie Engineering, said: “We are delighted to announce this new relationship with Connect Group. We look forward to supporting the team with a much simpler and efficient system for all their facilities management needs enhanced by our new technology and market-leading security services.”
