Trinities manufactured goods rely heavily on the prices for steel, its main raw input. Most of the company's products are built out of steel. Furthermore, steel makes up roughly 60% of the total production cost of each railcar. As a result, shortages in steel, price increases, or the movement of steel mills abroad will increase the cost of the company's operations.[3]
