Spring has Sprung: Door and Window Manufacturers Expanding

March 25th, 2024 by Editor

Spring is a time of growth and that’s not limited to the natural environment. Two door and window companies are in the news for their expansions this month.

In Virginia, Governor Glenn Youngkin announced that Tucker Door & Trim, a distributor and manufacturer of doors, windows, and specialty millwork to the construction industry, will invest $10 million to establish a new manufacturing and assembly operation for fiberboard and fiberglass doors and windows in Henrico County. According to a press release from the Governor’s office, the new facility—which will open by April 1, 2024—will increase capacity and provide the company the ability to serve the northeastern market.

“Tucker Door & Trim’s investment sends a clear message that there is a strong partnership for manufacturing with the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said Youngkin. “Virginia offers outstanding logistical advantages for wood product and related manufacturing industries, including abundant and renewable timber resources, direct access to suppliers and customers, and ability to serve the important northeastern market. We look forward to building on this strong partnership for years to come.”

Tucker Door & Trim has been in the business of distributing and manufacture of doors, windows, and specialty millwork since 1967.

“Our mission to become the premier choice for windows and doors and our growth plans made Virginia an ideal location for us,” said Phil Odom, president of Tucker Door & Trim. “This new location will offer us an unrivaled opportunity to serve new customers, grow and develop our team, and actively participate in our communities. We plan to bring the Tucker Door & Trim brand of service, product selection, and quality to Virginia with the same principles we have operated on for over 50 years.”

Meanwhile in Kansas

Around the same time, Kansas Governor Laura Kelly announced that door and window manufacturer Marvin selected Kansas City, Kansas, as the future home of its latest manufacturing facility. Per the Governor’s announcement, 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 fiberglass doors and windows. Additionally, 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,” Kelly said. “We are delivering on our commitment to making Kansas the best place to live, work, and raise a family.”

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.
