19 August, 2019: London: Today IT Lab announced that Mirus IT, the long-standing Milton Keynes based managed services provider is now part of the IT Lab group.
This transaction follows IT Lab’s ECI-backed acquisition of Content and Code in September 2018 and Perspective Risk in May 2017, enabling it to provide a wider portfolio of services to an expanded client base and further solidifying IT Lab as one of the UK’s leading technology services and solutions providers and seeing the business’ combined turnover exceed £75m.

Mirus is both a national and regional award-winning managed services provider operating across London and Buckinghamshire. Their success has been a result of their dedicated team of experts delivering against the diversifying needs of their clients since 2002.
Making the announcement, IT Lab’s CEO, Peter Sweetbaum said: “We are delighted to welcome Mirus as part of the IT Lab group. Mirus is a company which we have admired and grown alongside in the managed services space for many years now. Mirus has a 17-year history of excellence in client service as evidenced by its growth over this period and trust among not only its clients, but the marketplace generally. We share a common focus on ensuring clients not only have excellent service, but also access to the optimal technology solutions to enable their clients to succeed. In this we have a shared view of not only the power of the Microsoft portfolio, but also the incredible speed at which it is evolving.
“By coming together, we are able to help Mirus’ clients benefit fully from Microsoft’s 3 Clouds and the transformational capabilities of Dynamics; SharePoint; Teams and Power Apps in addition to Mirus’ Office 365 and Azure offerings. IT Lab’s cyber security services, including our award-winning Security Operations Centre and Penetration Testing services will also provide Mirus’ clients with increased options in an increasingly security focused world.”
With the benefit of the recently acquired Content and Code, IT Lab group is one of the UK's largest and most awarded Microsoft productivity and collaboration providers. In July 2019, the company was named finalist in two Microsoft Partner of the Year categories including Modern Workplace Transformation and Customer Experience as well as being announced as one of a few companies globally to be a denoted Support Partner for Microsoft Managed Desktop.
Paul Tomlinson, CEO of Mirus today commented: “In early 2019 we reviewed our long-term strategy and felt our clients’ needs and the industry were changing rapidly. After thorough review we felt that the right way to address this was to join a larger organisation who had the range of additional skills our clients needed and of course the same approach to providing an exceptional experience when delivering service.
“During the 17 years I have been running Mirus, I have kept a close track of other technology providers and IT Lab are a provider I have always respected and paid close attention to their journey. I’m incredibly pleased and excited to be joining such an amazing organisation that shares a very similar culture to our own.
“We believe the breadth of skills within the IT Lab group will allow us to address our clients changing needs and provide exciting long-term career opportunities for myself and our people.”
