Crystal Windows V.P. Receives Business Award
Crystal Window & Door Systems Vice President of Manufacturing Jimmy Jin was recently honored by the Asian American Business Development Center (AABDC) as one of 50 outstanding Asian Americans in business for 2007. This prestigious award recognizes Asian American entrepreneurs and executives who have made a difference in corporate America and their communities and promotes the contributions of Asian Americans and Asian American businesses to the economy.
Jin is the fifth Crystal executive to receive the AABDC annual award in the past 10 years. Crystal Founder and President Thomas Chen and key top executives at three of Crystal's subsidiary and affiliate operations have also been recognized in the past by AABDC for their accomplishments.
"I am deeply honored to receive this award. To be part of the Crystal dynasty of successful executives is particularly rewarding," Jin said.
"We are very proud of Jimmy and his dedication to manufacturing excellence at Crystal. He is a critical part of our success," Chen declared.
With Crystal since 1992, Jin has held various management positions involving Crystal's sales, purchasing, shipping and production departments. He was the primary leader of the company's successful expansion and relocation of production equipment several years ago to Crystal's new facility in College Point Corporate Park. His insights, intuition and technical abilities have helped Crystal to manage tremendous sales growth and maintain production reliability.
Jin holds a degree in mechanical engineering from Hua Dong Technical University in Mainland China, where he worked for manufacturing firms before coming to the United States to join Crystal. He lives in Flushing with his family.
The AABDC Awards Gala was held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Manhattan on June 22. United States Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao was the keynote speaker for the event. Honorees were selected from a diverse group of Asian Americans, including those from the Chinese, Korean, South Asian, Thai, Filipino and Japanese communities.
