Batesville Getting Serious About Burial Vaults
It was announced a few months ago that Batesville purchased the intellectual properties of the burial vault portion of the Goria Corporation. It is obvious that Batesville is looking to other outlets to recoup some of the profit they are losing from dwindling casket sales.
Not much has been said or heard from Batesville regarding their involvement with producing and or supplying burial vaults since their purchase until the below ads starting appearing in newspapers across the country (confirmed newspapers have been in Cincinnati, Ohio and Louisville, Kentucky, others have been rumors) and on online job sites like CareerBuilder.com.
From the text of the job description it sounds like Batesville is going to try to deliver and service their own burial vaults. This is a HUGE task. It would require Batesville to purchase tents, grass, lowering devices, chairs, and carts (for vault transportation in cemetery). This is not something to look at lightly. If Batesville were to do this it would cost them millions. And if they are willing to pay millions, my guess is this is not something they are just “testing”.
Below is the job post and description that appeared on CareerBuilder.com and in the Cincinnati Enquirer.
