GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Traded in other countries:TRR.Germany
Trex Company, Inc. founded as a Delaware corporation in 1998. The Company is a manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railing, fencing and trim products, which are marketed under the brand name Trex. It offers a set of aesthetically durable, low maintenance product offerings in the decking, railing, porch, fencing and trim categories. The Company has three principal decking products: Trex Transcend, Trex Accents, and Trex Escapes; two railing products: Trex Designer Series Railing and Trex Transcend Railing; two fencing products: Trex Seclusions and Trex Surroundings; and a cellular PVC outdoor trim product, TrexTrim. In addition, it offers Trex Hideaway, which is a hidden fastening system for specially grooved boards. The Company has received product building code listings from the major U.S. and Canadian building code listing agencies for both its decking and railing systems. Its listings facilitate the acquisition of building permits by deck builders and promote consumer and industry acceptance of its products as an alternative to wood in decking. The Company distributes its products through wholesale distribution, retail lumber dealers, Home Depot and Lowe's. The Company has manufacturing facilities in Winchester, Virginia and Fernley, Nevada, which had floor space of approximately 265,000 square feet and 250,000 square feet, respectively. Trex products are mainly manufactured from waste wood fiber and reclaimed polyethylene. Its main manufacturing process involves mixing wood particles with plastic, heating and finally extruding, or forcing, the highly viscous and abrasive material through a profile die. In decking, it competes with wood and other manufacturers of wood alternative decking products. In railing, it competes with wood and other manufacturers of composite, non-wood and plastic products, as well as with railings using metal, glass, vinyl and other materials. In privacy fencing, the Company competes with wood, vinyl and other manufacturers of composites. In trim, it competes against wood, engineered wood, fiber cement, and other manufacturers of cellular PVC and similar plastic products. The Company is subject to federal, state and local environmental regulation.
