Crystal Window & Door Systems recently was ranked tenth on Crain’s New York Business’s list of New York City’s top minority-owned firms. The list appeared in the March 14 edition of the publication.

This year Crystal advanced five positions on the list, moving from fifteenth in the most recent list in 2014 to tenth in 2016. Crystal first appeared on the Crain’s list in 1998.  This year’s ranking is the company’s highest to date.

The Crain’s list is comprised of the largest privately held firms that are at least 51 percent minority-owned and headquartered in New York City or in seven surrounding New York and New Jersey counties. The ranking is based on annual company revenues from the prior year.

“I’m proud that Crystal’s sustained growth and success continue to be recognized by the New York business community,” says Steve Chen, Crystal’s COO.  “This recognition is even more notable when you consider that the greater New York metro area comprises perhaps 15 million diverse people and tens of thousands of minority-owned companies. We owe it all to our dedicated workforce, our loyal trade customers and the appeal of our energy efficient made-in-America fenestration products.”

Crain’s is a weekly business magazine published in print and online.
