Marvin Investing $76.5M, Creating 600 Jobs in Kansas City, Kansas

TOPEKA – Governor Laura Kelly announced today that Marvin, a premium manufacturer of windows and doors, has selected Kansas City, Kansas, as the future home of its latest manufacturing facility. Marvin is investing $76.5 million to build a 400,000-square-foot facility in the Scannell 435 Logistics Center. 

Upon completion in 2025, Marvin anticipates employing approximately 100 team members in full-time positions across its manufacturing, fabrication, and assembly divisions to produce the company’s industry-leading fiberglass window and door solutions. With progressive annual growth, Marvin expects to employ a 600-person workforce in Kansas City by 2028. 

“Marvin’s investment emphasizes that my administration’s approach to attracting business into our state is working,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “We are delivering on our commitment to making Kansas the best place to live, work, and raise a family.” 

Marvin conducted extensive research across multiple states before selecting Kansas City, Kansas, for this development. A strong workforce, state and local commitment to education, a collaborative approach to economic development, and compatibility all contributed to Marvin’s final selection.  

“Marvin has been on a significant growth trajectory over the past six years,” Marvin CEO and Chair of the Board Paul Marvin said. “Investing in additional facilities not only is strategic for continued growth but also will help meet current and anticipated short-term demand in the marketplace.”  

With its expansion to Kansas City, Marvin will operate in 17 cities across North America, including its two-million-square-foot campus in the company’s founding headquarters of Warroad, Minnesota.  

“Kansas fought hard to win Marvin’s new production facility because we value their reputation for building industry-leading products and treating their workers well, and because they align with Kansas’ strengths in advanced manufacturing and distribution,” Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce David Toland said. “We will continue pursuing companies such as Marvin that are finding success in the target sectors outlined in our state’s economic development strategic plan – the Kansas Framework for Growth.” 

Since its inception in 1912, Marvin has been family-owned and -led. Today, seven fourth-generation Marvin family members serve in full-time roles at the company, stewarding the business with the same founding principles of ingenuity and integrity with which the company was established.  

“As our history shows, when Marvin commits to doing business in a community, we consider that a long-term partnership,” CEO Marvin said. “We’ve been warmly welcomed by many in Kansas City and look forward to providing meaningful career opportunities and engaging in opportunities to give back across Wyandotte County in the years to come.”  

“I am excited to have a well-respected and established company such as Marvin choose Kansas to expand their business,” Kansas City, Kansas, Mayor Pro Tem Tom Burroughs said. “Marvin not only will provide quality products for the building industry but quality jobs for Kansas City and Wyandotte County. I look forward to a long-term relationship as they help expand the economic development footprint in our community.” 

Marvin is ranked 19th on Forbes magazine’s America’s Best Large Employers, an exclusive list of the nation’s top places to work with more than 5,000 employees. Details about career opportunities at Marvin in Kansas City are available online here.
