July 30, 2015 – FARGO, North Dakota — Integrity Windows and Doors marked its 20 year anniversary of making products in Fargo, North Dakota. The company celebrated with a picnic for employees and their families.
One employee, Wade Storey, was one of the Integrity employees hired when the company was formed, which is under the parent company Marvin Windows and Doors. Storey has been with the company for over 20 years and is one of the 30 employees who has been with Integrity since its start. Over 1,000 employees work at the Integrity factory in Fargo – the parent company, Marvin Windows and Doors, operates out of Warroad, Minnesota.
Integrity is known for Ultrex fiberglass, which was created when Marvin partnered with Tecton Products. Ultrex fiberglass is eight times stronger than vinyl and just as strong as steel. All Integrity products are made with Ultrex fiberglass, which is patented by the company.
Initially, Integrity operated out of Marvin’s Warroad factory until 1995, when the company moved to its own facility to manufacture its line of Ultrex products. By 1996, Integrity introduced their wood-Ultrex line which had a wood interior and an Ultrex exterior.
By 2007, Integrity introduced another line of products called IMPACT particularly for hurricane zone 3 affected areas, meeting the needs of a growing economy with different household product needs in different areas of the country. With a growing economy, more jobs are required to meet demand. Vice President of Operations for the Marvin family of companies, Brian Johnson, said “We have positions open from operations through engineering. We’ve got technical positions, managerial positions.”
In the past 20 years, Integrity has grown into a successful brand under the Marvin family of companies. Director of Operations at Integrity, Chris Barta, said “Our company experienced many changes since we started, and time after time this group has stepped up to the challenge. I am proud to be able to say that I’m a part of this team and am very excited about what the future will bring.”
Integrity Windows and Doors is in its fourth generation of family ownership and operation and will be here to stay for years to come, with their line of Ultrex windows and doors.
