NEPA — National manufacturer Crystal Window & Door Systems has expanded production at its newest factory in Northeast Pennsylvania (NEPA) with the recent addition of the Crystal Series 100 vinyl window line. The addition provides the company with greater production capacity and affords the company greater flexibility in production scheduling. In late 2015, Crystal acquired the PA factory, which required significant renovations and reconfigurations to accommodate window manufacturing operations. Since production start up in 2016, Crystal has been assembling three of the company’s 20 product lines there, and the Series 100 vinyl line is now the fourth. “We’ve spent time and effort renovating and preparing our facility for new production lines and now we are ready to utilize the space,” said Craig Calderone, General Manager for Crystal’s PA operation. “Crystal is currently fabricating three aluminum products here and now that we’ve added the appropriate saws and assembly equipment, the Series 100 will be the first of many more Crystal vinyl products to come. Further into the future we even have plans to add vinyl extrusion capabilities at this facility.” Presently Crystal extrudes vinyl window profiles only at its New York factory.
