Crystal Windows Chicago Facility Expands Midwest Distribution



CHICAGO, IL — October 13, 2010 —
Crystal Window & Door Systems has expanded the distribution capabilities of
its Chicago production facility and now ships energy efficient vinyl and
aluminum window and door products to company branches in the St. Louis and
areas.  The manufacturer is also
shipping products to window dealers and distributors and to major construction
sites located throughout the Midwest.  Besides the St.
and Cleveland areas, the
Chicago manufacturing facility can now directly
serve other major urban areas such as Kansas
, Milwaukee, Minneapolis/St. Paul,
Indianapolis, Detroit, Columbus, Cincinnati and Nashville.


This extension of distribution
operations for Crystal’s Chicago plant is a direct
result of the facility’s recent expansion of production capabilities with the
addition of new equipment and new window lines.  The expansion of production and
distribution in Chicago are major steps in the
ongoing integration effort started late last year between Crystal Window &
Door Systems in New York and its Chicago affiliate Crystal
Windows & Doors Illinois Manufacturing.  Prior to the expansions and integration,
Crystal’s Chicago
facility only supplied the Chicago metro area and
most Midwest customers received products manufactured in and shipped from
New York
.  Now,
for most of the Crystal product lines, an
expanding number of Midwest customers will
benefit from improved turnaround and reduced delivery times.  This expansion increases the overall
capacity and flexibility of the Crystal Windows network of factories and
logistics operations.


The expanded distribution
operations from the Chicago plant also offers potential benefits to
owners, developers and architects seeking LEED credits for their buildings.  With Crystal’s Union, MO aluminum extrusion facility located within 500 miles of
the Chicago window assembly point, many projects
within that 500-mile radius using Crystal aluminum windows may qualify for
Regionally Sourced Materials LEED credits in addition to Energy Efficiency and
Recycled Content LEED credits.


The 80,000-sq. ft. Chicago
plant now produces a major portion of the broad Crystal product line.  Products manufactured include the Series
100, 200, 300 and 500 vinyl windows, the Series 2000A and 4000 aluminum windows,
and the Series 1240 aluminum sliding patio door.  Many of the Crystal standard vinyl
window offerings are Energy Star rated and when ordered with special options
qualify homeowners for federal ARRA stimulus tax credit incentives.
