FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury design and fabrication company Superior Metal and Woodwork, located in a 25,000-square-foot facility in Farmingdale, Long Island, has been chosen by SmartCEO magazine as one of 2016's top family-owned businesses in the New York area. The SmartCEO Family Business Awards celebrate the achievements of New York's top family businesses. Superior, along with 30 other family-owned businesses, will be profiled in the magazine's September/October issue.
Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO says, "Family firms make up more than 80 percent of all businesses in North America." Superior is part of this year's honorees whose businesses collectively generate more than $840 million in annual revenue and employ more than 3,200 individuals.
The Superior team, comprised of the Cipri-Castrillon family, is headed by CEO John Cipri, who has 25 years experience in this highly specialized field. Superior's artisanal metal and glass designs can be seen on numerous buildings in New York, including H.Stern's exquisite and unique facade. The specially designed 30ft. wide by 30ft. high facade incorporates a design based on H.Stern's logotype "S." Superior's artisans crafted 460 individual bronze metal panels forming a scale-like texture that changes appearance with the sunlight. Originally developed by Studio Arthur Casas of Brazil, Superior took the design and engineered each individual piece. Their skilled installers then secured each panel onto the grid, designed with New York City weather conditions in mind, so that rainwater would cascade behind the facade's structure.
Excellent craftsmanship, unique design and functionality, as well as swift responsiveness and tremendous attention to detail is what makes Superior Metal and Woodwork the go-to design and fabrication firm for the luxury market in retail and residential construction locally, nationally and internationally. (Most recently, Superior was invited to Rome, Italy by executives at luxury jeweler Bulgari to offer design solutions for Bulgari's flagship Fifth Avenue store.)
A seasoned expert in his field, John Cipri states, "In this niche industry, we believe our design must not only reflect the aesthetics of the brand but also the attitude of the people it serves."
Being passionate about the quality of their work, as well as possessing excellent problem solving capabilities is what propels Superior executives to live by their business motto, "Just make it happen!"
