The cost of lead times.

by on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 8:30:00 AM

We all love a great deal. And for some of us, it’s not only the satisfaction of saving money, but we live for the negotiation. But when does the art of negotiation pass the line of ROI? Too often negotiations will go on for weeks for a fraction of a percent in price; but what is that really costing you? At Kendall Howard, we run into this more often than you may think. As an American made manufacturer, we are constantly competing with the low prices that are stamped on many IT infrastructure...


CPU Holders are a true space saver!

by on Monday, March 06, 2017 8:15:00 AM

Years ago at one of my first internships, I had a very small workspace. In fact, my desk was actually one long desk that I shared with two others, and I was planted in the middle. But that didn’t matter – all I needed was space for my computer, phone, and notebook of daily tasks. And because I had limited desk space, my computer tower was located under my desk. No big deal there…and I actually turned it into my footrest. (Sorry computer and tech guys. Please try not to cringe as you read that...


Keep calm and add cable managers

by on Monday, February 20, 2017 8:20:00 AM

Here at Kendall Howard, cable management isn’t just something you should do because it makes your installation look better or because we think you should. Even though it does add a little time to your initial installation and does involve a slightly bigger investment upfront, we want to help you understand how cable management helps you as an installer, and can help your company’s bottom line. Let’s first go through the reasons why cable management is important, and then, most importantly,...


Do more with less space!

by on Monday, February 06, 2017 11:40:00 AM

Is there anything more annoying in the IT industry than network cables twisted together in one giant mess?? At the very least it’s something we’d all like to avoid…even if it isn’t the worst thing we’ve seen in the field. Tangled cords and cables are just a headache waiting to happen. One of the ways Kendall Howard can help you avoid tangled cables and unnecessary headaches is by using our Flanged Lacing Bars in your network racks. Whether you use our 3” deep, 5” deep or standard Flanged Lacing...

If you haven’t yet checked out our 4-Post Adjustable Rack, you need to! This product is packed with so many features and numerous ways to use it – it really is the definition of versatility. Let’s take a little tour of this simplistic, yet multi-functional rack. First of all, let’s talk about the overall design.

Getting down to the core…our core values.

by on Tuesday, January 03, 2017 9:00:00 AM

One of our core values is being supportive. Why is this value so important to us? Because our core values make us who we are…and being supportive is a very important piece. Yes, we are a manufacturer, but our products are just that… products. With the changing markets, our product line will change. New products will be developed, old products will be discontinued, and while I am the first to say our product line is a cut above the rest, at the end of the day, it’s just a product. What truly...


We have no shortage when it comes to top quality!

by on Friday, December 30, 2016 10:45:00 AM

Here at Kendall Howard we’re constantly promoting our high quality products and attention to detail. One of the ways we’re able to continuously produce top quality products is by purchasing and maintaining top quality machines. We are meticulous when it comes to ensuring each laser, brake press, hand tool, and so on are working at their optimum levels. For instance, our machines have monthly maintenance done on them to ensure all gears are working correcting. And if between maintenance checks...


We're out of this world!

by on Tuesday, December 20, 2016 10:00:00 AM

This is a catch phrase that you hear many companies exclaim! However, we really are out of this world! Did you know that we have supplied numerous products for NASA? And we know for certain one of them made it on to NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE). This robotic mission orbited the moon gathering information about the lunar atmosphere. How do we know? A couple years ago, a representative from NASA reached out to us to learn more about our 1U Vented Rack Mountable...


Kendall Howard dives into a fun week!

by on Friday, August 26, 2016 9:20:00 AM

Raise your hand if you’ve ever worn a onesie, a rainbow wig, dressed up like Luke Skywalker, or went the entire day without combing your hair. If you’re reading this, I expect your hands to be up…because let’s face it, we’ve all done at least one of these. But notice how I didn’t ask when did you do this? That’s kinda the point. Sure, we might have done these when we were children or on Halloween, but the staff at Kendall Howard did all this and more (so much more) last week. No, we didn’t lose...


This rack is pretty hard core

by on Monday, July 18, 2016 8:30:00 AM

Around the Kendall Howard office, we tend to nickname some of our products during development. We do this because either we’re brainstorming the appropriate name for when we send it to market, it’s easier than just saying “that new rack we’re making,” and also it brings some extra laughs to the development meetings. Well, for those of you who don’t know, we call the Phantom Class® Open Frame Swing-Out Rack the bad a**. Why? Well, because it’s pretty bad a**! OK, I’ll give you a little more...
