Marvin Honored by Minnesota Builders

March 1, 2012

The Builders Association of Minnesota has named Marvin Windows & Doors to the Minnesota Building Industry Hall of Fame.  Marvin is the first company to be so honored, joining 37 individuals who had previously been inducted into the hall.

“The Builders Association of Minnesota is proud to have Marvin Windows & Doors as a member and to have inducted Marvin into the Minnesota Building Industry Hall of Fame,” says Keith Kylmala, president of the organization. “Members of the Hall of Fame are the pillars of the residential construction industry in Minnesota, and Marvin fits that description perfectly. They so willingly volunteer time, energy and resources to the association and the industry statewide. Marvin is a model citizen of the Minnesota residential construction industry and the communities in which they do business.”

“It’s an honor and it is humbling to be the only company to have received this award,” says John W. “Jake” Marvin, chairman and CEO of Marvin Lumber & Cedar Co., the parent organization of all the Marvin companies. “More than four thousand people have ‘thrown in’ with the Marvin companies and have stayed with us throughout these very difficult years. Many of these great folks have given us their very best years. So it’s on their behalf that I thank you for this wonderful recognition."
