Sanilac County, Michigan – February 23, 2024 – Local IT powerhouse Kendra IT is undergoing a major transformation, reflecting its impressive growth and evolving identity. The company, which began as a solo venture by Ben Kendra in his high school days, has blossomed into a team of eleven skilled professionals, prompting a name change to Division 27.
This strategic move signifies a shift from the “one-man gang” approach to a collaborative team environment, better representing the diverse expertise and capabilities currently offered. Division 27 now boasts a project manager, a distribution manager, an application developer, and four field technicians, each along with other staff members, contributing their unique talents to the team’s success.

A Passion for Technology, Driven by a Desire to Serve

Ben Kendra, the visionary behind Division 27, brings a wealth of experience to the table. As a former IT manager for a large school district, he oversaw a vast network of over 3,000 devices. His hands-on experience and keen understanding of the challenges faced by IT professionals fueled his desire to create a different kind of service provider.
“It’s not about getting as many jobs as possible,” Ben emphasizes. “Our mission is to be a valuable resource and make the lives of our clients easier. We want them to feel confident knowing their IT needs are handled by experts who truly care.”

Beyond the Name Change: A New Home and Expanded Services

In July 2023, the company moved into its spacious new headquarters, the former Buskirk Awning/Sanilac Centre building located at 400 Green Acres Dr. in Saandusky.
