Astral Industries, Inc., a Lynn, Indiana based manufacturer of 18 gauge, 20 gauge and stainless steel burial caskets, is keenly aware that difficult economic challenges have driven families to seek out affordable options when choosing a casket.  In response to the market’s evolving demand, Astral is proud to announce its business relationship with Sauder Funeral Products.  The two companies are a natural fit.  Both have their roots in the Midwest, and both are family-owned and operated.  Astral recognizes the importance of offering American-made products to funeral homes and the families they serve, and continues this mission by working with Ohio-based Sauder to provide a line of high definition, laminated wood burial and cremation caskets.  These units will join the existing Astral product line available at all Astral business and express centers.  “We know the marketplace is changing and with cremation on the rise, we knew that offering affordable cremation products was something that we had to do,” said Charlie Shaw, owner and CEO of Astral Industries.  “We talk to funeral directors all over the country who share their stories of families looking for good-looking, cost-effective products to honor their loved ones.  We work hard to make that happen, and we’re excited to have Sauder on our team, letting us offer funeral directors affordable choices for their families.”
