At this week's Technical and Manufacturing Conference, the Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) presented its first lifetime achievement award to James C. Krahn, who served WDMA on behalf of Marvin Windows and Doors for more than 50 years.

The award is given in recognition of those individuals who have devoted significant time, energy and effort toward creating and achieving the strategic initiatives of WDMA, and who are distinguished in their selflessness and vision for both WDMA and the industry as a whole.

In presenting the award, Steve Tourek, Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Marvin Windows and Doors and past WDMA Chairman, praised Jim saying, "Everyone knows Jim and the energy he has devoted to WDMA on behalf of Marvin Windows and also on behalf of the industry as a whole. It seems fitting that WDMA recognize Jim as the unique individual he is."

WDMA Chairman Al Babiuk, CEO of Loewen Windows, "It is not often that WDMA gets the chance to recognize a volunteer with Jim's enthusiasm and dedication for their contributions to the association."

In accepting the award, Jim urged WDMA to keep ahead of change, but not for change's sake. "Unless WDMA can accommodate change faster than those outside, we will ultimately fail." Jim retired from full-time work at Marvin last January, but continues to work on special projects for the company.
