Crain’s New York Business has named Crystal Window & Door Systems to the 2021 List of New York’s Largest Privately-Owned Companies. Based on 2020 revenues, the list includes the largest 125 privately-held businesses headquartered in the New York metro area of New York City, Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk counties, and Bergen, Hudson, Essex and Union counties of northern New Jersey. This is the first time in its 31-year history that Crystal has been included.

“With hundreds of thousands of private businesses in the New York region, including many that are the largest in the nation, it is quite a recognition for Crystal to be on this prestigious list,” said Steve Chen, president of Crystal Windows. “Especially with the challenges of the pandemic during the past year and a half, it is noteworthy that Crystal continued to serve its customers across the country efficiently and effectively.”

Crystal is the only manufacturer on the list in New York and one of only five companies on the list that are headquartered in Queens, N.Y.

The top three companies on the list – Hearst, Bloomberg and Horizon Media – are in the media and information services sector. In addition, many of the region’s largest developers, real estate investors and construction firms such as the Trump Organization, Hunter Roberts, STV, Procida, DeMattis and Tishman Speyer are also represented. One-quarter of the listed companies are headquartered in New Jersey.

“Crystal is proud to be a true manufacturer in New York City,” said Chen. “Our location in the heart of Queens keeps us close to our construction and real estate customers, as well as the numerous home improvement companies in the region. We provide jobs for over 350 New York residents at our facility, and we contribute significantly to the local economy. It is a win-win situation for Crystal and for New York.”
