Crystal Windows Kicks Off 25th Anniversary Year Celebration
FLUSHING, NY, November 3, 2014 – Crystal Window & Door Systems announced today the start of its 25th Anniversary celebration year. Launched in May 1990, the vinyl and aluminum window and door manufacturer has grown from very humble beginnings in a New York City garage into one of the largest fenestration manufacturers in the nation.
The company will recognize and celebrate the 25th Anniversary milestone in numerous ways in the coming months, culminating in planned grand employee and customer galas in February and May of next year. "Besides customer and employee celebrations, we've planned recognitions which include revisions to the company logo and tag line; additions to the company print, trade show and radio advertising; and website and social media promotion," said Steve Chen, Crystal's COO.
Crystal Window & Door Systems was started almost a quarter century ago by Taiwanese-American immigrant Thomas Chen with a small operation fabricating aluminum windows for the local neighborhood in the New York City Borough of Queens. Through hard work, initiative and perseverance, Crystal grew dramatically and now has a major national presence. Today the Crystal family of companies boasts more than one-half million square feet of manufacturing space in New York, Chicago, Missouri and Southern California, state-of-the-art automated production equipment, vertically integrated operations, a broad energy efficient vinyl and aluminum product line, and a national sales and distribution network. The company, through subsidiaries, has expanded beyond window production into solar energy and aluminum extrusion and finishing.
The Crystal companies employ more than 300 workers in New York City and about 500 across the nation. Thomas Chen, the founder and CEO, has been assisted for more than a decade by his son, Steve Chen, COO, who is responsible for the company's day to day operations.
Crystal Window & Door Systems is one of the top 40 manufacturers in North America of replacement and new construction vinyl and aluminum window and door products and high-end fenestration systems.
