RICHMOND, Ind. – Vision Casket Co., and its parent company Vandor Corp., have announced a new line expansion into value-priced hardwood caskets, that will be available Oct. 1, 2017. This new line of Vision hardwoods bridges the price gap between cloth-covered and traditionally-styled hardwood caskets and addresses the expanding trend of cremation and burial families who are seeking lower casket price points without sacrificing quality and eye appeal.
“This new line of value-priced, solid wood caskets will be marketed under the Vision Casket brand, offering high eye appeal and featuring enhanced interior widths, ranging from 25½-inch standard to 33-inch oversize,” said Gerald Davis, president of Vandor Corp. “Vision Casket’s exclusive body side and end carving accents enhance their appeal and address local and regional decorative casket themes.”
Initially, the new Vision Casket line will include select, oak and cherry species, manufactured to adhere to the rigorous quality standards of all Vandor products. With the Vision expansion into valued-priced hardwood, customers can now receive a wide variety of funeral and cremation product on the same truck, without the need for protective blankets, which helps to greatly reduce cost per unit and shrink inventory stocking levels. While many other casket companies have moved production out of the United States, Vandor Corporation remains committed to manufacturing in the United States.
