Mark & Laurie Matthiae

Mark MatthiaeMark and Laurie Matthiae co-founded Crystal Finishing Systems, Inc., of Weston in 1993. An aluminum extrusion and fabrications manufacturer and finisher, it has grown from a small shop with five full-time employees in 1994 to one of the nation’s 5,000 fastest-growing privately-owned manufacturing companies, now employing more than 430.

The Matthiaes share their success with the community by supporting and being involved in local activities, which earned them the honor of being named Weston’s Citizens of the Year in 2007.

Understanding the skills required to build a winning team, the Matthiaes know that when promoted to management positions, even the best employees often need help becoming successful leaders. “NTC’s Supervisory Management program gives employees who are advancing into management positions the leadership skills they need,” noted Mark. “We want to help as many people as possible go through the program. We’re glad that this year we’ve been able to increase the scholarship from $250 to $750.”
