At Kendall Howard we go out of our way to make sure our products are more than “standard.” Now, we understand that in our industry there are numerous standards that we must adhere to...but that doesn’t mean we can’t set new ones when it comes to quality, functionality, and creativity!Take our Phantom Class® Open Frame Swing-Out Rack for example. (Or as many of us around here refer to as the “Bad A** Rack.”) It has all the standard features that any rack would need: EIA compliant, 16” on center...


Don't get in over your head!

by on Monday, September 14, 2015 8:15:00 AM

Like most of you, I’ve used technology for most of my life. It started with the Apple 2C computer that had a giant floppy drive with 8 MB (which was extremely fast back then.) It has now advanced to touchscreen tablets and cell phones that have 128 gigs of storage, fit in your pocket, and can operate for 24 hours without needing a charge. Technology changes faster than most of us can keep up with. There is always something new being designed to make your job easier, make us more efficient, and...


Stop paying for air!

by on Tuesday, September 08, 2015 8:15:00 AM

I went to Target Field the other day to watch the Twins baseball game. It was hot and even though beers and margaritas sounded delicious, I chose water. It seemed like the obvious and simple choice to quench my thirst. It also seemed like the inexpensive choice…wrong! It was $4.50 for a 22 oz. bottle of Aquafina! What?! I guess I should expect high prices at a ball park, but still…that seems excessive for a plastic bottle that you could fill up on your own at a stream or fountain. Yes, the...


To comply or not to comply...

by on Monday, August 31, 2015 8:15:00 AM

We consistently have the day-to-day struggle of making choices and trying to forecast the outcome. Do I leave the house on an overcast day without an umbrella and risk getting soaked? Should I get gas before work or can I wait until afterward? Do I bite into that pizza roll immediately after being nuked in the microwave and risk burning the inside of my mouth? These circumstances are all that we are truly left with when the day is over. The same thing goes with ensuring your personal and credit...


Not your everyday hardware!

by on Thursday, August 06, 2015 8:25:00 AM

Don’t you just hate it when you’re installing a new IT server cabinet or rack and you run out of screws to finish the job? Either you didn’t pick up enough screws at the hardware store or, heaven forbid, the company shorted you and didn’t send you enough! And now you’re left scrambling…but how are you supposed to complete your installation without an essential piece of the puzzle? OK, before we answer that, here’s another question to get you thinking. What if that hardware you needed could be...


Plan ahead!

“Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success.” Thanks Henry Ford for your wise words and the Ford Model T. This particular quote resonates on so many levels with our day to day activities. Do I have enough time to oversleep 10 minutes and still get ready and be at work on time? Is there enough room for me to park there? Will I have enough room in my belly for that last piece of pizza? All valid concerns, however in my line of business, an extremely important question we must...


Playtime at the summer picnic!

by on Monday, July 20, 2015 8:15:00 AM

When’s the last time you challenged your co-worker or boss to a race through a bouncy house obstacle course? Or enjoyed spending the entire day with your co-workers on your day off? Well, at Kendall Howard we all can say we did that last weekend at the summer picnic! And it wasn’t just us – it was our entire affiliated family. Earlier this year we mentioned that Kendall Howard, along with two other companies (Lemon Water Salon and Spa and Zaggie Macs E-Cigs) is part of a larger company,...


Wall mounting made easy!

by on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 9:15:00 AM

Nowadays owning a flat screen TV is like owning a cell phone – pretty much everyone has one. And over the years, entertainment systems have drastically changed in design and functionality. Instead of having a massive wooden structure that uses up half the living room, these days entertainment systems are more flush against the wall and primarily designed to support multiple electronics. Entertainment systems are no longer just a place holder for a TV, but also a PlayStation, Wii, iPod dock and...


We love our city!

by on Monday, June 29, 2015 8:15:00 AM

If you can’t already tell by our American made products, Kendall Howard likes to keep things local. And this doesn’t just mean by producing products solely made in the USA, but also by encouraging and assisting our local community! This community means a lot to us and we like to make sure they know it! Allow me to explain our city and the shared interest of continual support we have for each other. Kendall Howard is located in Chisago City. (Yes, Chisago with an s. Not to be confused with the...


The Breakdown on EIA-310

by on Thursday, June 25, 2015 9:15:00 AM

Like all industries, there are numerous standards to adhere to and certifications to achieve when manufacturing and distributing products. In the IT server rack and cabinet industry, there is no exception. One of the main standards Kendall Howard meets is EIA-310. You’ve probably noticed that 90% of our products indicate that they are compliant to this standard. But why is that and what does this standard mean? We’ll get to all of that, but first, why is this standard important? The simple...
