SICH Casket Adds Six Distributors In 2019

SICH Casket, a leading provider of burial and cremation caskets to funeral homes throughout North America, announced that the company brought aboard six new distributors during calendar year 2019.   These new distributors join the other 20 SICH distributors in the network and enable SICH to enhance its brand presence throughout North America

“It’s a real testament to the strength of our brand for each of these distributors to want to join the SICH family.  With the addition of these six distributors, more funeral homes throughout North America will have easy access to the SICH line of both our burial and our new cremation caskets,” commented Sirius Chan, president of SICH Casket.  “We are encouraged that in addition to these six new distributors, we have several others that we will soon be announcing once they build their initial inventory.”

The six new distributors and their locations that were added in 2019 are:

Bourgeois Casket Company – Lawtell, Louisiana

Carolina Southern Funeral Service – Bamberg, South Carolina

Casket Wise – Los Angeles, California

Central Ohio Casket and Vault – Columbus, Ohio

Continental Casket Company – Watseka, Illinois

Grand Meadow Casket Company – Grand Meadow, Minnesota

“These new distributors have told us that in addition to our quality caskets, they appreciate our factory’s state-of-the-art production capacity and automated warehouse system that improves inventory control and reduces product damage from handling,” commented Chan. “They have also said they are grateful that unlike some of the other overseas casket manufacturers who manufacture and sell to multiple distributor networks, our factory produces only SICH caskets for sale exclusively to SICH distributors.”

SICH distributors have access to a full line of marketing tools for use with their customers.  In addition to the standard promotional items offered by most distributors such as casket images and flyers, SICH also provides its distributors with white papers, trade show banners, and posters, customizable distributor ads as well as a complete library of videos. 

“We are committed to providing our distributors with best in class resources to help build their businesses,” Chan added.   “As an additional measure of security for our distributors and their customers, each of our products is covered by a $5 million dollar product liability insurance policy from one of the most renowned insurance companies in the USA.”

“Our delivery network currently consists of 63 distributor warehouses strategically located throughout North America.   This distribution footprint continues to grow and expand as we add progressive distributors to the SICH family,” stated Scott Weisenbach, National Sales Director for SICH Casket.  “In the coming months, we look to bring on additional partners to help us establish and maintain a truly world-class network of distributors throughout North America.”
