With an investment of several million dollars, the new equipment has greatly increased capabilities and overall window production capacity for the manufacturer. Installation of all the glass line components was accomplished using equipment supplier and in-house technicians. Crystal Pennsylvania has hired 9 additional employees for the new glass line and related operations. Crystal is planning additional equipment acquisition for the Pennsylvania factory for 2018, including vinyl window assembly machinery enabling most of Crystal’s vinyl windows and doors to be made in Pennsylvania as well as New York. FNCB Donation to LCCC Foundation FNCB Bank recently announced a $1,000 Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) donation to the Luzerne County Community College Foundation in support of its Early College Program. The Early College Program is designed to provide high school students with the opportunity to earn college credits at LCCC at a reduced rate. The credits are transferrable to other colleges and universities after high school graduation. Quandel Donates for Springboard Healthy Scranton Noble C. “Bud” Quandel, the fourth-generation leader of the namesake construction and railroad company founded in Pennsylvania, is donating $100,000 to Springboard Healthy Scranton, the first-of-its-kind program designed to improve an entire community’s health. Springboard Healthy Scranton will place the community’s focus on preventive care, behavioral health and economic growth. It will seek bold goals, such as coordinating community resources to eliminate hunger and preventable chronic diseases and change how healthcare is delivered through the power of genomic medicine. “I believe in Springboard Healthy Scranton’s goal and vision,” said Mr. Quandel, chief executive of Quandel Enterprises, Inc. “This will have long-term benefits for Northeastern Pennsylvania, where Quandel began in 1882. We hope Springboard’s success locally will be repeated in communities across the country.” Once developed, tested and implemented, projects will be optimized to create the most cost-effective and sustainable solutions to issues affecting a community’s health. Once proven, they will be shared both nationally and globally. Springboard Healthy was founded in 2016 as a breakthrough approach to solving critical national and global health challenges. The intent is to engage and empower an entire city to achieve health transformation by fostering an environment of access, possibility, and collaboration, and to build a repeatable model for community-wide success. 8 • The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce
