This month marks BTT’s 25th anniversary in business.
BTT was first set up by Peter Bright and John in 1995. The business focus was mainly sub-contracting on large cabling projects and delivering our own cabling solutions and the business grew until both, Pete and John wished to take a step back.
In 2006, both Peter and John decided to retire and pursue other interests so they handed the reins over to Robert Bright (Peter’s son.)
Robert has been in the industry since 1988, working as an engineer for companies such as Phillips, GPT, AT&T and BT. By the age of 25, Robert was working and running major projects such as installing phone systems in all of the tax offices, several banks, hospitals and a nuclear power station.
When Robert took over the business, he changed the direction of the business to be more focussed on winning the contracts themselves and extended the core offering to include all aspects of telecoms and many other technologies.
After a year at the reins, Robert met Shiv Passap. Shiv had been working on the network services side of telecoms for several years and Robert saw an opportunity to grow the business together by offering telephone systems and their associated applications in tandem with network services. He invited Shiv to join the business as a Director. Shiv accepted.
Since then, the business has grown year on year and together, Robert and Shiv have expanded the offering further to include security and energy services.
Over the years, we have covered most industries but we do specialise in Retail, Distribution, Hospitality, Healthcare and Education. Some of our largest clients include SCS, Bookers, Centre Islands Hotels, Evans Halshaw, Hammonds Furniture, Royal Marsden Hospital, Luton and Dunstable Hospital and The Trust Group UK to name but a few.
At BTT we put in solutions for our customers which enhance their business and as a result, they become busier but more efficient. Our focus is to always keep our customer’s business’s connected and help them with technological advances so that they can remain efficient and effective and ultimately, their business grows.
We adopt the philosophy of becoming a partner not a supplier. We retain a healthy relationship with our customers so that they have a communications partner they can trust to keep them ahead of any technological changes.
