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.

Business Description

Industry: Packaging & Containers » Packaging & Containers
Compare:SON, BMBLY, AMCRY, BLL, REXMY » details
UFP Technologies, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Delaware in 1993. The Company designs and manufactures engineered packaging solutions utilizing molded and fabricated foams, vacuum-formed plastics, and molded fiber. The Company also designs and manufactures engineered component products using laminating, molding, and fabricating technologies. It serves a myriad of manufacturing sectors, but specifically targets opportunities in the medical and scientific, automotive, aerospace and defense, computer and electronics, industrial, and consumer markets. The Company's packaging solutions are made mainly from polyethylene and polyurethane foams, and a wide range of sheet plastics. These solutions are custom designed and fabricated or molded to provide protection for fragile and valuable items, and are sold mainly to original equipment and component manufacturers. Molded fiber products are made mainly from 100% recycled paper mainly derived from waste newspaper. These products are custom designed, engineered and molded into shapes for packaging high volume consumer goods, including computer components, light electronics, candles, and health and beauty products. In addition to packaging solutions, the Company fabricates and molds component products made from cross-linked polyethylene foams, reticulated polyurethane foams, and other specialty materials. The Company also laminates fabrics and other materials to cross-linked polyethylene foams, polyurethane foams and other substrates. The Company's component products include automotive interior trim, medical device components, disposable wound care components, military uniform and gear components, athletic padding, air filtration, high-temperature insulation, and abrasive nail files and other beauty aids. Wine Packs, T-Tubes, and Pro-Sticks are its U.S. registered trademarks. The packaging industry has been subject to user, industry, and legislative pressure to develop environmentally responsible packaging alternatives that reduce, reuse, and recycle packaging materials. The Company's main competition for its packaging products has been from smaller independent regional manufacturing companies. In addition, the Company's foam and fiber packaging products compete against products made from alternative materials, including expanded polystyrene foams, die-cut corrugated, plastic peanuts, plastic bubbles, and foam-in-place urethane.
