Marvin Windows and Doors was honored on April 29 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,” said 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, Minn., Marvin employs more than 5,000 workers at seven factories in five states.
