Immigrant window manufacturer honored for his Spirit.
As the organization celebrated its 31st anniversary, it recognized individuals and businesses that have made a difference in the community. Chen received the Spirit of Immigrant Award, acknowledging his significant impact on the business community and his influence as a role model for inspiring immigrants who come to America.
"I am humbled to be honored by such a renowned organization as the YMCA," said Chen. "The services they provide the communities of Chinatown and the Lower East Side are invaluable and I am proud to be able to support their efforts."
The timing of the award is particularly apropos. In addition to the community and philanthropic activities Crystal has with the New York area Chinese-American community, its window and door products are also improving the quality of life in that community. Almost 4,000 Crystal windows are currently being installed by general contractor Ecker Windows for the window replacement project at the Confucius Plaza multi-family housing complex in the heart of Chinatown.
Crystal Window & Door Systems is one of the top 65 manufacturers of replacement and new construction vinyl and aluminum window and door products in North America. Crystal offers a full product line, rapid order-to-delivery times, quality workmanship, innovative product features and outstanding value.
