    Trex Enterprises Corporation (Trex) is a diversified high-technology company specializing in cutting-edge technical solutions and products to improve performance across the electromagnetic spectrum. Established in 1978 as Western Research Corporation, the firm operated in San Diego, California. From 1988 until 2000 Trex was part of Thermo Electron. In 2000, the group's employees bought ThermoTrex's R&D division and became Trex Enterprises Corporation. Today, Trex is a privately-held company, with headquarters in San Diego, California and facilities in New Mexico, Hawaii (Honolulu, Kauai, Maui) and Massachusetts, employing about 200 professionals. The firm has incubated six new ventures that have received substantial venture capital support. All of these ventures share several things in common: a major technology breakthrough with patented intellectual property, a business plan that identifies a large target market and a reasonable path to exploit the opportunity, and the human and financial resources needed to meet Trex's goals.
