NFRC's Executive Director Speaks Out on Passing of Industry Giant

Jim Benney, Executive Director, of NFRC offered his thoughts on the passing of industry giant, Bill Marvin.

"I have many fond memories of the Marvin family from my days with the National Window and Door Association and want to express my condolences to them and my appreciation for their contribution to the fenestration industry.

I had my first opportunity this past week to actually visit the Marvin facility in Warroad, Minnesota. It reminded me of the important ties that the window industry has always had with their communities and how generations of families have worked hard to produce quality products and to provide a quality of life to their environs.

It was great to experience the pride that so many people expressed in their town and in the state, and I am sure this pride is duplicated in so many of the communities across this country where window and door businesses have existed for generations. It makes me extremely proud to be associated with this industry.”

Marvin died at his home on Monday morning, August 31. He was 92.
