BROADVIEW, IL, March 17, 2014 – Thirty Wilbert Licensees were recognized with various awards for accomplishments in 2013 at the Wilbert Funeral Services, Inc (WFSI) Annual Sales Meeting, held in Dallas, TX in January.

A Special Achievement Award was presented to Johnny Moller, Sales Representative for Iowa-based Williams Wilbert Vault Works and Waterloo Wilbert Vault Company.  This is the only individual honor and is awarded for exemplary efforts both within his territory as well as within the Wilbert network.  Johnny’s focus on his customers is second-to-none and he contributes time and expertise on special projects for Wilbert.

Two awards for sales growth in lined burial vaults were presented.  Piedmont Precast, Atlanta, GA won the award for the greatest unit sales of lined burial vaults, while Akron Concrete Products, Akron, IN won an award for the greatest percentage growth in this category.  Lined burial vaults are constructed of high-strength concrete and reinforced with a metal or plastic liner, providing the most lasting protection compared to unlined concrete graveboxes.

The greatest increase in cremation product sales was awarded to Arnold Wilbert Corporation, Goldsboro, NC.  Cremation products include urns, mementos and memorialization jewelry.

Twenty-six Wilbert Licensees received the Wilbert 110% Club award, recognizing those whose 2013 burial vault sales were at least 110% of those in 2012.  Recipients were:
