The factory was started in 1962, and has been in operation since that time. The business owner, Dave Christian stated through reliable sources that the company had struggled in the past few years due to the growing amount of cremations had reduced demand for the company's metal casket handles.

It's extremally interesting that you had posted this, Kevin. Carl Woerner has been trying to reach you. It has something to do about a casket that you had picked up way back in August.
