Trex Company – Why Work For Us?


CHANGING THE WAY THE WORLD LIVES OUTDOORS

Since 1996 Trex has invented, defined and perfected the composite deck category, becoming the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking products. Never content to settle, we continue to make strides in outdoor engineering, melding innovation with environmental responsibility and beautiful form with powerful function.

Formed in 1996 through the buyout of a division of Mobil Corporation, our company went public in 1999. Today we offer the industry’s widest array of high-performance composite products, which are available in more than 42 countries around the world. With the largest market share of composite decking in North America, a growing international footprint and more than $300,000,000 in annual sales, we lead the industry on a global scale.

INNOVATION

There’s a reason we’re the world’s #1 decking brand: we offer the most innovative, technologically advanced outdoor living products available today. As the first company to combine the durability of recycled plastic with the natural beauty of reclaimed wood in a high-performance decking product, we lead the way in applying this proprietary technology to a wide variety of outdoor applications for low-maintenance, luxurious outdoor living.

Trex Company, named a 2014 Top Workplace by the Washington Post, is the nation’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railing, fencing and trim with more than 20 years of product experience. Built on “green” principles and values, Trex makes its products from a unique formulation of reclaimed wood and plastic, combined through a proprietary process. Trex® outdoor living products offer significant design flexibility with fewer ongoing maintenance requirements than wood, as well as a truly environmentally responsible choice. Trex® decking products contain 95% recycled content and we are one of the largest plastic scrap recyclers in the U.S. Our organization keeps 400MM pounds of plastic and wood scrap out of landfills every year! 

We have consistently received awards for our market leadership and innovation. A measure of our success is the growing number of showcase installations using Trex Decking & Railing. These projects include: Disney World at Fort Wilderness and Disney Celebration, the Presidential trail at Mount Rushmore, and boardwalks at the New Jersey Shore and Toronto, Ontario.
