A Brand That Lasts
Oelfke added that Marvin, whose efforts have been recognized by both the Chamber of Commerce and with a recent nomination by Plains Capital Bank as Family-Owned Business of the Year, has also helped to sponsor the yearly springtime barbecue for 4,000 military personnel at the local joint reserves base. “He’s a very good guy,” Oelfke said.
The Long View
Marvin is truly a family affair. Schuster works together with his son, Scott; son-in-law, Chris Hahn; his wife; Ricki; and an extended family of longstanding employees that keeps the company top of mind in Fort Worth. His dad, Marvin, is still involved, as well. “He comes in about twice a week, sees all the employees, shakes hands with everyone and sees a few customers and checks his workbook. He has an office here. And my grandkids, who are still very young, go to school around here and come here for lunch. This is home base for our family, as well as being a business,” Schuster said. “The key to Marvin, what it goes back to, is that our family is businesspeople first, and audio and video people second. We’re a business family, so we do business,”
