Marvin Named First Company in BAM Hall of FameMarch 1st, 2012 by Editor
The Builders Association of Minnesota (BAM) has named Marvin Windows and Doors to the Minnesota Building Industry Hall of Fame. Marvin is the first company to receive the honor, joining 37 individuals who had previously been inducted into the hall.
“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 4,000 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.
Founded in 1994, the Minnesota Building Industry Hall of Fame honors those “who make a significant and lasting contribution to the housing industry in Minnesota and to the Builders Association of Minnesota.”
According to the announcement, Marvin was selected as the first company to be inducted because it is a Minnesota company that has consistently supported Minnesota’s home building industry and builders associations.
“The Builders Association of Minnesota is proud to have Marvin Windows and Doors as a member and to have inducted Marvin into the Minnesota Building Industry Hall of Fame,” says BAM president Keith Kylmala. “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.”
