Mitchfield domestic cleaning, security and maintenance

The co-founders of the new Surrey cleaning and security firm first met 22 years ago as school boy army cadets in the Banstead force unit. Pete Mitchell and Chris Mansfield both went on to have successful careers as professional soldiers, Pete in the Royal Green Jackets and Chris in the Royal Marines, but always remained friends. Now the pair have set up Mitchfield, a domestic cleaning, security and maintenance firm which has already won some important contracts.
