Warroad, MN—Window and door firm Marvin expanded its Fargo, ND operations and named Christine Marvin Chief Marketing and Experience Officer (CMO), a newly created position.

With more than 7,000 employees across 16 cities in North America, Marvin says it will expand operations in Fargo with the addition of two new facilities: a 127,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing site and a 148,000-sq.-ft. distribution center to support growth.

Marvin currently operates six facilities with more than 1,700 employees in Fargo and West Fargo. To open by mid-year 2022, the new locations will add 150 new jobs, with a starting wage at $20 per hour. Marvin manufactures fiberglass window lines in Fargo, including the Essential (all fiberglass) and the Elevate (with wood interior surface). Fargo is also headquarters for Tecton Products, a 650–employee fiberglass extrusion business Marvin started as a partnership in 1990 and acquired in 2008.
