Crystal Windows Grows Sales Despite Recession
- Manufacturer Reports Fiscal Year Revenue Increase -

FLUSHING, NY, May 29, 2009 - Crystal Window & Door Systems, the award-winning national manufacturer, reported that despite the dismal economic climate, the company achieved an increase in sales for the fiscal year ending April 30, 2009. Crystal's annual revenues from aluminum and vinyl windows and doors and high-end fenestration systems for the period May 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009, while not the double digit growth rates seen in most years, increased a very respectable 3% over the previous year. Annual sales are approaching $60 million for the American manufacturer and have increased in 18 of the company's 19 years of existence, making it a dramatic rising star success story in the fenestration industry.

That we were able to succeed in such a bleak economy, with the construction and remodeling industries severely depressed and at a time when other window manufacturers are shutting down plants or going out of business, is truly remarkable, stated Steve Chen, Executive Vice President. I think we have weathered the worst of the recessionary storm, and with our new energy efficient products and our new strategies in place we are positioned for greater growth in the coming year.

Significant sales increases from the company's national sales teams in New England, the Mid-Atlantic and Mid-West, along with solid performance by the New York metro area delivered the results. "A lot of good honest hard work by all our sales and customer service representatives made this success possible." said Harold Kaye, Senior Vice President for Business Development. "Our vertically integrated manufacturing, our new product offerings and our enhanced dealer/distributor programs and marketing materials have definitely contributed, but when all is said and done, it"s the customer insight and the dedication and determination of our sales teams that made the year a resounding success."

The fiscal year sales growth report is just the latest in a recent string of recognitions of Crystal's success. In February the company was listed for the eleventh year in a row in Window & Door Magazine's annual listing of top North American industry manufacturers. More recently the company was ranked 18th (and third largest employer) in Crain's New York Business' annual list of 25 Largest Minority-Owned Companies in the New York Metro Area.
