Who is The Kendall Group?
The Kendall Group is a wholesale supply partner providing quality products, services, and solutions to manufacturers, contractors, original equipment manufacturers, and utilities across the mid-west, east coast, and south-east regions. We offer diverse employment opportunities in distribution, logistics, operations, sales, accounting, marketing, finance, human resources, management, and technical service and support.
The key to our success is our people
As a 100% employee-owned company, we’re more than just associates. We are owners.
Each Owner-Associate contributes directly to the organization’s growth and success, encouraging new ideas and honest collaboration. In return, we all share the benefits through our ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) when our company performs well. We sincerely believe this company structure has a genuine impact on our day-to-day functions.
We go the extra mile
At The Kendall Group, we care about each Owner-Associate, the communities we work and reside in, and the customers we serve.
Owner-Associates are encouraged to get involved and give back to organizations in their local communities and charities they feel passionate about through many ways like Charitable Giving Day, the Discretionary Giving Fund, or Matching Gift Program.
Exceptional customer service is at the core of everything we do. We understand that we succeed when our customers succeed, so we move into each interaction with teamwork and collaboration to show The Kendall Group difference. Our team members embody honesty, professionalism, and knowledge, enabling us to take projects to the next level.
As Owner-Associates, we all have a stake in our company through the ESOP. Employee ownership drives us to offer our highest level of service excellence to our customers and our fellow Owner-Associates and is what sets The Kendall Group apart. We Own It.
The Kendall Group offers the following benefits to our Owner-Associates. Click on each benefit title to learn more.
Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP)
The Kendall Group is a 100% Employee-Owned company through the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).
An ESOP is a qualified retirement plan where our Owner-Associates accumulate shares of the company over time that are held in an ESOP Trust. Unlike a 401(k) plan, Owner-Associates do not contribute their own money to the ESOP; The Kendall Group makes all contributions. Annual contributions are made based on the company’s profits for the year. The ESOP enables our Owner-Associates to benefit from The Kendall Group’s financial growth and success.
Medical, Dental, and Vision
The Kendall Group strives to offer plans that best suit the needs of our Owner-Associates and their families at an affordable cost. We offer full-time Owner-Associates medical, dental, and vision benefits. Owner-Associates can choose between multiple medical plans, including a Health Savings Account (HSA) with an employer contribution.
Kendall offers a 401(k) plan to all Owner-Associates and matches a portion of the Owner-Associate’s contribution.
Employee Assistance Program
Kendall offers many programs to our Owner-Associates and their dependents, such as Wellbeing programs, Mental Health and Substance Use resources, Legal Assistance & Financial Resources, Will Preparation Services, Identity Theft Assistance, and Dependent and Elder Care Resources.
Paid Time Off and Holidays
Kendall offers generous paid time off that can be used at the discretion of each Owner-Associate for vacation, sick, or personal time. We also observe eight paid holidays throughout the year.
Training and Career Development
The skills and knowledge of our Owner-Associates directly impact the success of our organization. We provide ongoing training and opportunities for career development and advancement. The Kendall Group also offers our Owner-Associates education assistance to further their education.
We believe in being active participants in our local communities. Our Owner-Associates can give back in the following ways:
Charitable Giving Day—Kendall will compensate an Owner-Associate for 8 hours of time donated to a charitable organization.
Discretionary Giving Program—Kendall will donate funds to an organization or event in a community at the request of our Owner-Associate.
Matching Gift Program—Kendall will match Owner-Associate donations to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of their choice.
