40 Under 40: Steve Chen
What is your greatest professional accomplishment?
My greatest professional accomplishment was recently being named President for Crystal Window & Door Systems, its subsidiaries and five factories across the nation. It's a big responsibility and incredibly intense, but with the support of my over 700 dedicated employees and managers, I'm certain Crystal Windows will continue on its path of growth, expansion, improvement, and success.
What is your most notable project, deal or transaction?
While Crystal Windows has been the window supplier for many, many important new construction and renovation building protects throughout the country, our most notable recent project was the company's purchase of 226 acres with a large 336,000 s/f building in NEPA. Since acquiring the property, which is just north of Scranton, we've renovated the facility extensively, installed lots of new window and glass production equipment, hired 100 workers, and are now producing vinyl and aluminum windows and doors there.
