Window & Door has announced its 2008 Crystal Achievement Award winners. Selected by a panel of judges representing all segments of the industry, the awards recognize significant innovations and achievements in window and door technology, manufacturing, and marketing.

"When so many headlines are gloomy, it's a real pleasure to put the focus on new products and technologies that highlight creativity and ingenuity and the growth potential of our industry. Our Crystal Achievement Award winners this year are delivering some real new options to homeowners," says John Swanson, editor/associate publisher.

"This year's winners also reflect the industry's willingness - and enthusiasm - to step up to the plate to meet the demands of the green building movement," notes Christina Lewellen, senior editor and coordinator of the award program.
