About Red Level

Michigan’s leading technology services partner for small to medium-sized businesses

In the right hands, IT can be a powerful competitive advantage for business. For fourteen years, Red Level has given that advantage to businesses throughout Michigan.

Red Level is a preferred partner of leading technology companies such as Microsoft, DellEMC, Cisco and VMWare. In fact, we’re one of the leading, award-winning Microsoft partners in Michigan.

We leverage best-in-class software, hardware, and services from these companies and others to create versatile and reliable IT solutions.

Good People Doing Great Work. This is Red Level IT in Detroit.

Our history

Red Level started with just a few assets: A recently-discharged United States Navy IT specialist, two of his colleagues, a 200-square-foot workspace, and a card table.

Red Level. Delivering Game Changing Technologies Since 2004

They named their company “Red Level,” the military designation for a project of the highest level of urgency. Red Level set out to be a partner that companies could trust with their critical technology and the well-being of their businesses.

Fourteen years later, Red Level owns its own state-of-the-art 19,000 square foot facility and employs a staff of 40 highly-skilled professionals.

Red Level began with two basic ideas in mind:

  • Offer businesses in Michigan IT services of the same quality, integrity and expertise as those in the armed forces.
  • Work with clients to provide exactly what they needed, not just what would sell.

The approach worked. Clients found that their business performance improved. This scrappy upstart company delivered better value, more advanced solutions and better service than their more established competitors. Red Level was on the map as a trusted partner who could be counted on to drive business success.

What makes Red Level better than other IT providers? Red Level people.
