Knauer Industries profiled for our upcoming national ad campaign

We took a trip to Joliet, Illinois last week to visit long-time friend and business partner Connie Knauer in preparation for an upcoming ad campaign featuring our strong dealer network.

As we toured their facility we were truly amazed with the quality of their vaults.

For nearly 40 years, the Knauer family has built their reputation in the Chicagoland area. Nearly every vault that leaves their plant has been touched by an owner's hands.

But Knauer Industries is more than precise vault corners and beautiful finishes. Vaults aren't just transactions with a funeral director or cemetery. Vaults help families protect their loved ones.

Thank you, Knauer Industries.

New Healing Tree support trays

A few dealers shared their concern about keeping the Healing Tree carapace flat while filling it with concrete. In response to this great feedback, we have created a new Healing Tree lid pouring support tray.  

The tray has a cut out that holds the raised tree shape while keeping the entire carapace level and secure while the concrete sets. A wooden insert fits into the cut out so it can be used for pouring flat caps as well.

A new church window support tray is also available. 

The support tray is available for $245. Call Customer Service at 800.637.1992 to order.
