Suhor Industries, Inc. Announces Signet Supply Officers

OVERLAND PARK, KS – Suhor Industries, Inc. announced that its newest division, Signet Supply, has named Donald R. Robinson as President. In addition, Curt Shannon was appointed as Vice President of Sales and Ken Moore as Vice President of Marketing.

Signet Supply launched operations 18 months ago in response to the need for lower cost, high quality funeral products delivered with uncompromised service. Initially Signet Supply’s offering has been a targeted selection of high-volume, eye-appealing caskets. Signet Supply strives to fill the gap between cost and quality; creating value for funeral home customers and ultimately the families they serve.

The Signet Supply team continues to focus on accelerating the growth and success they have experienced to-date. According to Robinson, “the successful launch, expansion and achievements thus far are the combined result of the excellent efforts of our entire team and most importantly because of the support and encouragement from our funeral home customers. Our business model enables us to find the best product value for our customers resulting in our offering a mix of products from domestic and international manufacturing facilities. Our pricing strategy is a straightforward approach – no minimums, no contracted obligations, no discount to calculate and no rebate to hope for or wait on”.

Signet Supply has quickly established a network of 25 same-day / next-day full-service distribution locations throughout the USA. Current states with at least one Signet Supply distribution location include: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington. Going forward the Signet Supply network will expand into other select markets while offering new lines of funeral merchandise.
