S J Bargh Ltd

Leading milk logistics company S. J. Bargh Ltd, are responsible for collecting milk from across the North West, the Midlands and Wales.


The company, which employs over 300 people across multiple sites, found that number of their offices were no longer suitable for the expanding business. A decision to relocate to a new larger site on Caton Road, Lancaster meant S J Bargh Ltd needed the help of a managed service provider to deliver reliable communications with minimal disruption.


The new office location required a reliable, high-speed broadband connection, as well as the relocation of the current Mitel phone system. In project managing the move, Arden group saw the long-term opportunity of improving the overall network within the business.


To provide S J Bargh Ltd with sufficient bandwidth we installed a 20/100mb leased line at the site. This forward thinking allows for more bandwidth to be made available as the business grows. This leased line created savings of £75 a month.

In order to retain current phone numbers from the previous ISDN30, we installed resilient SIP trunks, with an ISDN2 line as a backup. We then replicated their telephony environment on a loaned phone system, tested with dummy numbers and switched over within an hour, to prevent any downtime.

Arden Group are now planning to integrate all S J Bargh Ltd sites onto a PWAN to improve communication and infrastructure throughout the business.
