-Manufacturer’s Dedication to Construction Industry Recognized-
FLUSHING, NY, December 9, 2015 – Closing out its 25th Anniversary year, national manufacturer Crystal Window & Door Systems was honored at a gala awards dinner for its dedication to the construction industry by the Queens & Bronx Building Association (QBBA). Headquartered in the New York City borough of Queens, Crystal Windows has supplied thousands of construction projects throughout the metropolitan area over the past quarter century and counts many of its fellow QBBA members among its customers.
“This award from the Queens & Bronx Building Association is truly an honor,” said Steve Chen during his award acceptance remarks. “We are proud to play a role in the construction industry, which is a critical component of the economy of our city, by supplying American made energy efficient vinyl and aluminum windows and doors for every type of building.” Chen noted that several of the projects earning awards at the QBBA event used Crystal windows, including luxury 40-story highrise apartment property Bklyn/Air and 143-unit apartment building Macedonia Plaza. “Other recent notable projects Crystal has supplied in New York are the new and tallest Holiday Inn in the world in Manhattan’s Financial District and the expansive Glen Oaks Village 20,000 window replacement project in Queens,” said Chen.
“”The QBBA honor for Crystal Windows caps what has been a momentous 25th Anniversary year for the company,” said Chen. “During 2015, Crystal hosted several major gala Anniversary celebrations for its employees and top customers, its products and executives have been featured in several local and national TV shows, and we premiered an outstanding corporate promotional video that has gone on to win two national awards. Most recently, Crystal has acquired a large major new production facility and property in Northeast Pennsylvania as part of our national expansion plan. When this facility comes on line early next year, it will give us much needed expanded production capacity to grow and meet the demands of our customers here and across the nation for years to come.”
The Queens & Bronx Building Association Awards were presented at the well-attended Annual Building Awards and Holiday Party on December 5, 2015 at Douglaston Manor. In addition to Crystal Windows being honored, Architect Gino Longo was named Associate of the Year. Awards were presented to QBBA member firms in several new construction and renovation categories, recognizing the architects, builders, developers and suppliers who make the built environment of New York truly noteworthy. QBBA is the local chapter of the New York State Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders.
