The New York area's Regional Alliance for Small Contractors named
Thomas Chen, president of Crystal Window & Door Systems, as
the association's 2004 Specialty Supplier of the Year. The award
recognizes leading minority and women entrepreneurs in their fields
that have grown their businesses and significantly improved their
companies' competitive positions. This year's award was presented
at the Regional Alliance's annual luncheon on October 14, 2004,
at the New York Hilton in Manhattan.
"I am humbled to receive this honor from the Regional Alliance
and my peers in the construction industry," said Chen. "Crystal
has been involved with the Alliance for several years and we have
definitely realized benefits from that relationship."
