Marvin Honored as Family Business of the Year
April 30, 2010
Marvin Windows and Doors was honored yesterday as "Family Business
of the Year" by the University of St. Thomas's Opus College
of Business. The award, given by the college's Center for Family
Business of the Schulze School of Entrepreneurship, recognizes Marvin
for 98 years and four generations of business success coupled with
ongoing family leadership and community involvement.
"We're honored and humbled to be recognized with this award,"
says Jake Marvin, Chairman and chief executive officer of The Marvin
Companies. "In our modern economy, it's more important than
ever to have companies that recognize the timeless values of quality,
integrity and commitment to families, employees and communities.
"As I look back, I realize that much of what we all learned
about business, we learned from our father at the dinner table,"
Marvin said. "The values he taught us every day are the same
values we strive to uphold in running our business."
Based in Warroad, Marvin employs more than 5,000 workers at seven
factories in five states.
