May 21, 2024

Crystal Window & Door Systems, a leading manufacturer of window and door solutions for residential and commercial buildings, announced it will establish a new manufacturing facility in Selma, North Carolina. The company will invest $83.6 million and create 501 new jobs in Johnston County.

“With the top workforce in the nation that includes the largest manufacturing workforce in the Southeast, North Carolina is the perfect place for Crystal Window & Door Systems to establish its next manufacturing facility,” said Christopher Chung, CEO of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC). “Our state’s university and community college systems, workforce development programs and pipeline of talent provide the resources needed to attract companies like Chrystal Window & Door Systems, and we look forward to the positive impact the company will have on Johnston County and North Carolina.”

Headquartered in Queens, New York, Crystal Window & Door Systems began in 1990 and has grown to become one of the top 25 window manufacturers in North America. The company offers architectural designers made-to-order window and door solutions with sustainability, high performance, and energy efficiency in mind. The company has five plants across the country and employs over 800 people at its factories, distribution centers, regional offices and subsidiaries. The new manufacturing facility in Selma will help Crystal Window & Door Systems to produce aluminum and vinyl extrusion and window and door fabrication, with in-house finishing capabilities such as powder coating paint.

Although wages will vary depending on the position, the average salary for the new positions will be $56,061, above Johnston County’s average wage of $50,605. The EDPNC worked with the North Carolina Department of Commerce, as well as other state and local entities, providing support to the company and consulting teams during the duration of the project.

The EDPNC would like to recognize the North Carolina Department of Commerce as well as other key partners involved in this project, including the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, the North Carolina Department of Transportation and its Rail Division, Duke Energy, North Carolina Railroad Company, Norfolk Southern, Johnston County, the Town of Selma, and Johnston County’s Economic Development Office.
