Kenneth McElrath, Jr.Kenneth McElrath, Jr., a veteran, founded MAC Installations & Consulting, LLC, in Bedford, Ohio, in 2003. He built his telecommunications and information technology company on the assumption that managing information technology is like legal advice, accounting, and graphic arts – “it is not inherently a do-it-yourself prospect.”  You need to call in an expert.

The same holds true for taking your business to the next level. Mr. McElrath turned to the MBDA Business Center in Cleveland, Ohio, for assistance in growing his company.  Through a collaborative partnership, the Cleveland MBDA Business Center provided services that included a six-week Bond Prep program, help in setting up accounting software, and pre-bid assistance which enabled MAC Installations & Consulting to secure contracts totaling more than $680,000. In addition to increasing the company’s revenue by more than half a million dollars, 36 jobs were created and/or retained.
