Window & Door Manufacturer Selects KCK for $76M Facility, 600 New Jobs

Posted March 21, 2024

Warroad, Minnesota-based Marvin, a window and door manufacturer, has selected Kansas City, Kansas for the home of its new $76 million factory.

Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly announced Thursday that Marvin will invest $76.5 million to build a 400,000-square-foot facility in the Scannell 435 Logistics Center.

The new facility will be fully operational in 2025 and will create 600 new jobs by 2028. Marvin expects to employ about 100 full-time employees upon opening the facility.

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

Following Marvin’s beak into the Kansas market, the manufacturer will operate in 17 cities across North America. Marvin conducted research across multiple states before selecting KCK, citing a strong workforce, state and local commitment to education and a collaborative approach to economic development as key factors in choosing the location.

“Marvin has been on a significant growth trajectory over the past six years,” Marvin CEO and Chair of the Board Paul Marvin said in the release. “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.”
