Batesville Debuting Endura Burial Vault at ICCFA Convention

imageNext week’s ICCFA Convention in Las Vegas should be very exciting!! After receiving word yesterday through the Funeral Service Insider publication that Batesville is now launching their Endura burial vault national wide, it was also confirmed that they will be debuting the vault at the ICCFA convention.

Based on the comments from Joe Raver (who has now been replaced by Kim Dennis) in the article released yesterday in the Funeral Service Insider that Batesville has their sites firmly set on targeting the burial vault leaders, Wilbert and Trigard. They are holding nothing back and have full confidence in the strength of their plastic burial vault. They are distributing video showing a 22,000 pound dump truck driving over a fresh grave containing the Endura vault. The video also shows a 500 pound boulder dropped on the vault from 9ft above, twice.

I would be interested in seeing how this vault would hold up in a center load test that is administered by most of the concrete vault leaders.

Aurora Casket will also be debuting a new revolutionary Bronze Memorial marker. I did an interview earlier this week with Aurora marketing director Marty Strohofer, which I will be posting later today.

If you are attending the ICCFA convention please stop by the ConnectingDirectors.com/CDsocial.com booth #440. We will be right across from FuneralOne.

ConnectingDirectors.com will also be announcing our partnership with Disrupt Media Group. This partnership will bring the first Social Media Marketing company to the funeral industry through a trusted brand like ConnectingDirectors.com.

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
