Chesapeake facilities impress Trigard dealers; Sales Awards

Trigard dealers were impressed by a tour of Chesapeake Burial Vault in Barclay, Maryland. Many dealers listed it as one of the highlights of the entire convention. Brian DeMoss and his entire team spent countless hours preparing the facility for guests, but that attention to detail is part of what makes Chesapeake Burial Vault so successful.

Trigard dealers got to see some new equipment in action, inspect how Chesapeake puts together kits for the trucks and vans that serve the cemeteries, the office space and systems, a vinyl cutter and so much more.
Brian put together a PowerPoint presentation about the company's history, how they have grown, and the keys to their continuing success.

The Darby family, Trigard staff and all of the Trigard dealers thank Chesapeake Burial Vault for opening their doors and freely sharing ideas. Exchanging information is part of what makes us all Trigard Strong.
