Supply Chain Issues are Hurting Us All...


If your company has been considering upgrading to energy-efficient HVAC or lighting, the time to do it is NOW! Supply chain issues can cause unfortunate delays – you need to plan ahead to ensure you get the equipment you need. Get in the queue before it’s too late – you’ll be glad you did.

Q UEENS, NY — To supplement its main - stay powder coat alu - minum finish and extruded color vinyl, national manu - facturer Crystal Window & Door Systems has expanded its in-house product finish - ing options with a new liquid paint line at its Pennsylvania factory. Both aluminum and vinyl window products can be accommodated by the new paint line, which uses specially formulated paint for each type of material. The fully-OSHA compliant paint booths, drying facilities, and associated spray equipment allows operators to paint profiles up to 18 feet long in one- or two-tone finish. Crystal predominately uses advanced powder coat paint finish in several dozen stan - dard and stock colors for alu - minum extrusions and ex - trudes vinyl profiles in either white or beige for its broad window and door product line. However, in some instances in-factory manual painting remains an important option for special window orders. The new Pennsylvania paint opera - tion is part of the overall ongo - ing integration and optimiza - tion of Crystal’s production

operations at the company’s New York and Pennsylvania facilities. “Liquid paint finish is a great alternative for vinyl windows requiring a non-extruded color and for smaller aluminum or - ders that don’t require premi - um powder coat finish or that need special color windows in an expedited time frame,” said Joseph Chang , vice president of production. “Our new paint equipment in Pennsylvania adds to our existing capabili - ties at our New York facility, greatly increasing capacity and reducing lead times for these orders.” The new Pennsylvania paint line more than doubles the com - bined capacity at the New York and Pennsylvania facilities. It also can accommodate longer profiles than the existing New

York line. The new paint line allows greater production flex - ibility in terms of where prod - ucts are completed and finished for shipment to customers and job sites throughout the nation. Crystal’s in-house painted alu - minum and vinyl products are covered by factory warranties. “For those projects not able to utilize our powder coat alu - minum extrusions or extruded color vinyl profiles, our custom - ers will see many benefits with our in-house painted products. To accommodate most needs, we stock many colors and offer a wide array of custom colors through national suppliers,” said Chang. “This equipment gives us much greater capa - bility to handle special jobs rapidly in the most efficient manner, assuring speedy delivery.” MAREJ
