MK300 Delivers Substantial Savings To Funeral Directors
CINCINNATI, OHIO- August 5, 2013
Striving to meet the needs of a changing funeral services industry, The MK Coaches Company of Cincinnati, Oh, proudly introduces the MK 300 Funeral Coach. A true purpose built vehicle, the MK 300 offers a traditional funeral coach style, but for about half the cost of a “traditionally stretched” coach.
“It was my goal when designing the MK 300 to change or alter as little as possible on the original chassis,” said MK Coaches Company President, Mike Kellerman. ” The best engineers in designing and building a funeral coach,” he said, “is the OEM factory engineers.” By building onto a heavy-duty 7-passenger w/cargo frame, and not “cutting it,” the MK 300 features a chassis that keeps crucial vehicle operational lines intact as well as all OEM factory warranties. The MK 300 boast a larger casket compartment than most costing twice as much and will easily carry a full size casket and air tray.
The MK300 Story
MK Coach Co. is owned by Mike Kellerman and Family. The Kellerman family has been serving the Funeral Industry for over 30 years by manufacturing high quality funeral coaches built on a Cadillac, Lincoln, Chrysler, Chevrolet, and Buick chassis.
We sold our funeral coach manufacturing operation in 2006 but have kept a close eye on the funeral industry. We have seen many changes in funeral service since 2006 in part due to the economy and cremation.When an industry experiences such changes as we are seeing within the funeral industry today the suppliers need also change their products to meet the new needs of today’s Funeral Director.
The MK 300 was developed in part because many Funeral Coach Dealers and Funeral Directors have ask for a Funeral Coach that is traditional in its styling but priced to make sense for today’s Funeral Director. The MK 300 is priced at a little over half the cost of today’s Funeral Coaches but you compromise nothing! Its styling is Traditional and Beautiful inside and out. It carries a full size casket and air tray, its casket compartment is wider than those in most other coaches at twice the cost. Our Coach carries a full factory warranty along with our company conversion warranty that matches in length of time the OEM factory warranty. A very important issue to keep in mind when purchasing a new coach is how it is built. After 30 years building funeral coaches I am very sure of one thing, the best engineers in designing and building a funeral coach is the OEM factory engineers. Today’s cars are almost trouble free for over 100,000 miles. It was my goal in designing the MK 300 to change or alter as little as possible on the original chassis. I did not want to cut the chassis in two; this would lead to cutting the brake lines, gas lines, electrical harness, frame or uni-body, and we would need to design and manufacture new side doors along with many other parts. I am very pleased to state that the MK 300 is built on a heavy duty chassis that was designed for 7 passengers plus cargo. This is more than enough capacity to carry the driver, passenger, and casket that we designed the coach to carry. We do NOT cut the frame, brake lines, gas lines, and electrical harness in hope to deliver to our customer the most dependable, trouble free coach on the market. I am very confident we do!
