QUEENS, NY, May 17, 2024 – National manufacturer Crystal Window & Door Systems recently welcomed US Congressman Matthew Cartwright of Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District to tour its northeast Pennsylvania production facility, located north of Scranton in Benton Township.  As a business constituent in Congressman Cartwright’s district, Crystal was pleased to have the Representative meet its dedicated workforce in Pennsylvania and see its products and manufacturing equipment.

“Crystal was delighted that Congressman Cartwright could visit our facility in Benton Township and see firsthand the fabrication of our quality window and door products made by our skilled employees,” said Thomas Chen, Chairman.  “Our team was proud to describe the window manufacturing and insulated glass assembly processes and answer his questions.”

 

Crystal recently added several vinyl product lines to the roster of products fabricated at its northeast Pennsylvania factory, as well as expanded insulated glass unit assembly, including triple-pane units.  The company also invested in several pieces of new equipment to accommodate these additional products and future planned products.

 

During the visit with Congressman Cartwright, Crystal presented its general plans for further development on the property with additional production and warehouse space.  Crystal’s Pennsylvania facility is currently a 336,000-ft2 building on a 226-acre site adjacent to Highway 81.  Additional warehouse and production space will be needed as the company further integrates operations with Crystal’s New York factory and continues to add product lines to meet future demand.

 

“I am glad that Congressman Cartwright and his team learned more about Crystal and our plans to continue to grow in northeast Pennsylvania,” said Chen.  “We are proud to be part of the vibrant manufacturing community here in this district, and the understanding and support of elected officials is very important.”
