From IBS, Marvin comments on outlook for building industry

In a report from the International Builders Show in Las Vegas, WSJ/MarketWatch reporter Amy Hoak takes a look back at 2009 and looks ahead to 2010, including comments from Marvin Windows and Doors.

From the report:

Not surprisingly, many expect turnout for this year’s Builders’ show to be weak.

“A lot of builders had really hard times in 2009,” said John Kirchner, spokesman for Marvin Windows, an exhibitor at the show. “We’re anticipating turnout to be lighter this year than last year.” [...]

In the past, builders might have sent three to five employees to the show; many now are sending one or two, “and they are much more serious,” Kirchner said. Before, there was more of a social aspect to attending the show; “right now, they’re focused on the business. They’re going to the show looking for solutions and looking for partners.”
