Three autonomous businesses have teamed up to open a technology support center in Freeland.

Located on the second floor of the Porter building on Harbor Avenue, the center is home to Kennedy Research Group, The A-TECH and Gentle Mac Coaching. Together they offer a wide array of support services, from computer and network repair to helping businesses use technology to connect with customers and personalized Mac coaching.

The brainchild of Freeland residents and business owners Joel and Bethany Kennedy, the center is designed to bring all those different but complementing services under one roof, according to a recent news release.

“In the future we may bring more companies and services in, but already we have a well-rounded team,” said Joel Kennedy, in the release. “We’ve got a good dynamic going. We’re helping people with their technology, and having fun doing it.”

In addition to personalized instruction, the plan is to offer classes and workshops on much-needed subjects such as internet security and password management.

The center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For details, call 360-331-5070.
