Nominate Your Company for Crystal Achievement Awards

March 18, 2009

Crystal Achievement Awards logoIt's time to nominate your company for Window & Door's annual Crystal Achievement Awards. The industry peer-judged program honors outstanding achievements in window and door product technology, manufacturing and marketing.

"Despite the current state of the market, innovation continues within our industry," says John G. Swanson, associate publisher/editor of Window & Door magazine. "And there's no better time for the manufacturers and suppliers that are developing new products, components and programs to get the recognition they deserve. The Crystal Achievement Awards program always gives the window and door industry and individual companies something positive to talk about. We always encourage companies to submit nominations, but this year, I would note, recognition of your company's innovation and accomplishments provides a great marketing message in tough times."
