It's our fourth week of recapping the 2015 Trigard Dealer Convention in Indianapolis.
We began our final day presenting sales awards for achievement during 2014 to select vault dealers. Superior Vault Company of Merrill, Michigan (pictured) received the “You Get It” Award. This special award recognizes the dealer who showed extraordinary commitment to serving families. Watts Vault and Monument of Des Moines, Iowa, was recognized for highest overall sales volume.
In the large business division, awards went to Southside Grave and Vault Inc. of Skipwith, Virginia, for the highest growth percentage; Rocky Hill Vault, Inc. of Cromwell, Connecticut, for the second highest; and Mark H. Bott Co. of Ogden, Utah, for the third highest.
We finished off the day with a great presentation from Tim Massen, Graystone Associates out of Houston, Texas. He shared statistics and information on the state of the funeral industry. You'll find some of his most quotable quotes on our Facebook page.
