Scalable network for cloud-savvy building services firm


Mitton Group is a renowned name in the building services sector, with customers ranging from B&Q to BAE Systems, and Morrisons to Mitchells & Butlers. As the growing business continues to increase its reliance on cloud technologies, high-performance connectivity becomes ever more crucial.

At a Glance

• Flexible, scalable 1Gb connectivity
• 4-site WAN
• Contract renewal following five-year relationship with no downtime
• Competitively priced service to support business growth

The challenge

Bringing together a unique mix of mechanical and electrical contracting, service and maintenance aftercare as well as building and energy management divisions – plus whole building ‘total care’ expertise covering everything from interior building repairs to PAT testing – the Mitton Group is a trusted building services specialist.

Passionate about building a well-connected business, the management team first invested in a circuit – a four-site WAN – from Vapour in 2016, following a recommendation from the company’s IT provider.

Fast forward to 2021, and having encountered zero issues, Mitton Group had no intention of going elsewhere for its cloud connectivity requirements. The expanding firm simply needed more bandwidth, having continued to increase its reliance on cloud systems over the years.


In re-signing a new contract with Vapour after half a decade of working together, Mitton Group has upgraded all of its sites – including one extension – with greater bandwidth. The busy team now has 1Gb of connectivity across the board, to provide ultimate, future-proofed flexibility as the growth path continues. They have also switched to a SIP trunk phone system, utilising a fixed line also provided by Vapour.

The results

With resilient cloud connectivity powered by Vapour’s ultra-secure MPLS network, Mitton Group has a circuit that will support its flow of data both now, and into the future.

“Vapour’s is the type of technology you can’t touch or see – you barely realise it’s there. But that’s because it does its job – it keeps us running, with no downtime, enabling us to concentrate on providing a great service to our own customers. We’re becoming increasingly digitally savvy, and our reliance on the cloud is only going to grow.”
Ian Barraclough, manager, Mitton Group
