Casket companies have controlled the headlines on ConnectingDirectors.com for the past few months. First Aurora Casket made a big splash by selling to a private equity firm, then followed up with job cuts. Batesville Casket experienced 40 job cuts, and just last week Genesis Casket Company cleaned house by removing its entire executive team and a reported 50 factory workers.

The only one of the big 3 who hasn’t been in the news is Matthews International! Let’s not forget about Thacker Casket who I guess is now the largest family owned casket company.

So we want to ask: Who will win the casket battle? Which company is going to come out ahead?
