Quanex Building Products Corporation, together with its subsidiaries, provides engineered materials and aluminum sheet products worldwide. Products and Services The company produces window and door components for original equipment manufacturers that primarily serve the residential new construction, and residential remodeling and replacement markets. The company manufactures insulating glass (IG) spacer systems, window and door profiles, window and patio door screens, aluminum cladding and other roll formed metal window components, door components such as thresholds and astragals, patio screen doors and custom window grilles, trim and architectural moldings in various woods, thin film solar panel sealants, and engineered wood flooring. The company serves a primary customer base in North America, and also serves customers in international markets through its operating plants in the United Kingdom and Germany, as well as through sales and marketing activities in other countries. Strategy The company’s vision is to be the preferred supplier to its customers in each market that it serves. The company’s strategy to achieve this vision includes the following: focus on organic growth with current customer base and expand market share with national and regional customers; realize favorable profitability in manufacturing processes; offer logistic solutions that provide customers with just-in-time service which can reduce their processing costs; and pursue targeted business acquisitions which include vertically integrated vinyl extrusion businesses or screen manufacturers. Seasonality The company has historically experienced lower sales for its products during the first half of its year as winter weather reduces homebuilding and home improvement activity. The company’s operating income tends to decline during this period of lower sales because a high percentage of its operating expenses are fixed overhead. The company experiences more favorable results in the third and fourth quarters of the year.
