May 24, 2010

During Crystal's gala banquet company president Thomas Chen (second from right) and executive vice president Steve Chen (far left) received a New York State Senate proclamation recognizing the anniversary from State Senator Frank Padavan, with State Assemblywoman Grace Meng.

Crystal Window & Door Systems in Flushing, N.Y., marked the completion of 20 years in operation on May 15, 2010. The company was started two decades ago by Taiwanese-American immigrant Thomas Chen with a small Queens, N.Y., operation fabricating aluminum windows for the local community. Crystal today has production facilities in New York, Chicago and Missouri, vertically integrated operations, a national sales and distribution network, and international activities. The company has also expanded beyond windows to establish operations in building products such as fencing, solar panels and aluminum extrusion and finishing.

Crystal's 20-year anniversary has been formally recognized with special citations from the Queens Borough President, the New York State Senate, the New York City Mayor and the US House of Representatives. According to a company announcement, Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Congressman Gary Ackerman further proclaimed May 15, 2010 as Crystal Windows Day in the Borough of Queens, the City of New York, and the entire nation, respectively.
