There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Operations Manager Steve McHugh left Mole Group to set up Ardent Utilities.  Hang on – they’re in the office next door?! Then what were the flowers for lads? Steve has set up his own enterprise Ardent Utilities – so-called because of the team’s enthusiasm for self torture in Lycra, on the bike and on the running track.


They’ll be taking the same level of dedication to their underground utilities company providing specialist workmanship for the installation of domestic water mains in new-builds or existing properties. It’s been great working with Steve and Mark and we wish them all the best for their next step!

Mole Group will be maintaining such a close working relationship with our neighbours that our dogs will still go for lunch-time walkies together. We’ll still offer competitive water pipe replacements using Ardent as our preferred supplier knowing that we’ll be working side by side to look after our customers to build a successful and mutually beneficial future.
