On a field trip to chilly Warroad, Minn., in early November, Hanley Wood editors visited a tiny town with a big building products presence. As the home base of Marvin Windows & Doors, a high percentage of Warroad's population of 1,700 works at the 2-million-square-foot facility. From sturdy casements and double-hungs to specially-designed "signature products," the staff produces about 1,200 windows every day and sends them out to jobsites around the country.
