Vice President Biden Meets with Another Window Company

June 9th, 2009 by Editor

Vice President Joe Biden hosted a roundtable discussion last week with business leaders to highlight how the Recovery Act is creating new business opportunities. One of those business leaders included Steve Chen, executive vice president of Crystal Window and Door Systems Ltd. in Flushing, N.Y. (Biden visited Serious Materials/Republic in Chicago at the end of April.)

“Because of the Recovery Act’s emphasis on ENERGY-STAR rated products and our ability to promote our products as energy efficient, our business has improved,” said Chen. “The Recovery Act is not just an injection of cash into the economy; it goes a long way in educating the public and changing perceptions about ENERGY STARĀ® and greener products-how homeowners can invest in their homes, the environment and the economy at the same time.”

The Recovery Act also includes an $8,000 tax credit for first-time homebuyer that has turned out to be a bright spot for the hard-hit housing industry.
