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: Industrial Products » Metal Fabrication
Compare:RS, STBWY, AZZ, MLI, WOR » details
Traded in other countries:VI1.Germany
Valmont Industries, Inc. was founded in 1946, and became public in 1968. The Company is the producer of fabricated metal products and a producer of metal and concrete pole and tower structures in its Engineered Support Structures and Utilities Support Structures businesses and is a global producer of mechanized irrigation systems in its Irrigation business. It aggregates its operating segments into four reportable segments: Engineered Support Structures, Utility Support Structures, Coatings and Irrigation. In addition to these segments activities include the manufacture of tubular products for a variety of industrial customers and the distribution of industrial fasteners. The Engineered Support Structures segment manufactures and markets engineered metal structures in three product lines: Lighting and Traffic, which includes steel and aluminum poles and structures to which lighting and traffic control fixtures are attached for a range of outdoor lighting applications, such as streets, highways, parking lots, sports stadiums and commercial and residential developments; Specialty, which manufactures and sells a range of structures 'poles and towers' and components serving the wireless communication and highway sign markets. Specialty products also include special use structures for a variety of applications and Utility, which produces steel pole structures used for electrical transmission, substation and distribution applications. The Utility Support Structures segment produces steel and concrete pole structures for electrical transmission, substation and distribution applications. The Company's products help move electrical power from where it is produced to where it is used. It manufactures tapered steel and pre-stressed concrete poles for high-voltage transmission lines, substations which transfer high-voltage electricity to low-voltage transmission and electrical distribution which carry electricity from the substation to the end-user. In addition, it produces hybrid structures, which are structures with a concrete base section and steel upper sections. In its Coatings segment, it takes unfinished products from its customers and returns them with a galvanized, anodized or painted finish. Galvanizing is a process that protects steel with a zinc coating that is bonded to the product surface to inhibit rust and corrosion. Anodizing is a process applied to aluminum that oxidizes the surface of the aluminum in a controlled manner, which protects the aluminum from corrosion and allows the material to be dyed a variety of colors. The Company also paints products using powder coating and e-coating technology where paint is applied through an electrical charge for a number of industries and markets. In its Irrigation segment, it manufactures and distributes mechanical irrigation equipment and related service parts under the 'Valley' brand name. A Valmont irrigation machine usually is powered by electricity and propels itself over a farm
