MacKenzie Vault to Showcase Factory During Tour
HARTFORD, CONN. – Death-care professionals from throughout the country who have signed
up for the Crematory Operations Certification Conference, May 2, in Hartford, are looking forward to touring MacKenzie Vault’s factory in East Longmeadow, Mass.
The free tour and reception is open to anyone who registers for the conference, which is being organized by Kates-Boylston Publications in conjunction with the Cremation Association of North America. The conference offers continuing education credits for most attendees, and CANA will issue a certificate to those who take and pass a test at the end of the conference.
The MacKenzie Vault tour will feature free refreshments and offer attendees valuable time to network with their peers. “The MacKenzie family looks forward to welcoming all attendees to our urn workshop,” said the company’s president, Scott MacKenzie.
According to Scott MacKenzie, attendees will enjoy the first behind-the-scenes tour of its cultured marble urn facility. “Attendees will learn how we source all of our raw materials domestically and manufacture all products in small batches by hand here in Massachusetts.”
The MacKenzie family is excited to show how it mixes old world craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology, including laser engraving and earth-friendly composite resins made from corn and soy beans. “This tour will explore our family’s long history in funeral service and provide important product knowledge about cultured marble urns,” Scott MacKenzie said.
Attendees who want to go on the tour must be at the Marriott Downtown by 4:30 p.m. on May 1 to take advantage of free transportation to the factory. To learn more about the Crematory Operations Certification Conference, and to register, visit www.katesboylston.com/cremation or call 800-500-4585.
