Marvin welcomes Robert Conchola as director of operations for Marvin’s forthcoming manufacturing plant in Kansas City, Kansas. Conchola will oversee and guide the daily operations for Marvin in Kansas City and will soon begin to build the team that will open Marvin’s newest facility.

Construction will be completed next year, where Marvin anticipates growing to a 600-person workforce in 2028.

“I am honored to join Marvin and to be part of a company that truly values quality, innovation, and giving back to the community,” said Conchola. “I look forward to working with the talented team to establish our presence in Kansas City and contribute to the company's overall growth."
