Warroad, Minn., March 22, 2011 – Marvin Windows and Doors has been awarded a Certificate of Commendation by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). The award honors Marvin for outstanding operation, maintenance and management of its wastewater treatment operations.
“We’re honored by this award, which recognizes our commitment to maintaining a healthy environment for Minnesotans – today as well as for generations to come,” said Susan Marvin, president of Marvin Windows and Doors. “With our location on the shore of Lake of the Woods, we keenly appreciate Minnesota’s heritage of clean water.
“Running a clean manufacturing operation in today’s world requires a tremendous commitment to sound environmental practices, as well as a significant investment in technology and training,” Susan Marvin said. “We’re very pleased that our efforts have been recognized – and even more pleased that our manufacturing facility continues to provide good jobs for Minnesotans.
