You need to give a little more details.  Glass, acrylic, what needs to be done?

Sorry...Current sump was purchased used approx. 7 yrs ago. Itís 75 gal glass aquarium w/ acrylic dividers that have recently come loose. Need to repair/ or replace for optimal improvement of water flow in my 220 gal. mixed fish/ soft coral tank.

That should be an easy diy for yourself. Get rid of the acrylic dividers, silicone doesnít stick to it well. Clean all the old silicone off the glass of the aquarium. Have some new glass cut to size for your new divider panels then silicone them in place. Just use 100% silicone, nothing with mold resistant additives in it and you should be good. I have a 75 with dividers in it Iíd sell also if you donít want to mess with it but everyone likes their own sump design.

You likely won't be able to find any professionals willing to do that for a reasonable price in the area.
