New York State Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul visited Crystal Window & Door Systems' Queens, N.Y. headquarters and factory on July 1. During the visit, Hochul viewed the factory floor operations, met with Crystal founder and CEO Thomas Chen, and his son Steve Chen, Crystal's COO, and greeted some of the staff.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo sent a congratulatory letter on the 25th Anniversary milestone for the window manufacturer, which Lieutenant Governor Hochul presented to the Chens.

During the meeting, Crystal provided an overview of the company's national scope, including some of the economic challenges that New York City-based mid- and large-scale manufacturers face when competing nationally. This offered Lieutenant Governor Hochul an opportunity to understand in greater detail the needs and goals of manufacturers in this urban region.
