Glass Magazine Names 2011 Crystal Achievement Award Winners

WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept. 7, 2011

Glass Magazine has announced its 2011 Crystal Achievement Award winners. Selected by a panel of judges representing all segments of the glass industry, the awards recognize the best products and glass applications the commercial, retail and fabrication markets have to offer.

“The level of competition this year … shows a tremendous effort within our industry to continue to push the boundaries, while still providing quality on all levels to satisfy the architectural community, as well as building ownership,” says 2011 Crystal Achievement Award Judge Les Young, project manager, W&W Glass LLC, Nanuet, N.Y.

“I’m really glad to see the unique qualities of glass being used in so many different ways,” says fellow Judge John Stephenson, design director, Richard Wittschiebe Hand Architects, Atlanta. “It is great to know the [glass industry’s] innovation, technology and special expertise is continuing at a rapid pace.”

Special thanks go to Crystal Achievement Award sponsor GGI, Secaucus, N.J., for producing the 2011 Crystal Achievement Award plaques, and to C.R. Laurence Co., Los Angeles, for supplying the hardware.
