Suhor Industries Acquires Two Casket Companies
On October 6, 2010, Suhor Industries acquired the assets of Sound Casket Company in Arlington, Washington. Sound Casket Company had been in business for over 10 years selling both domestic and imported caskets from China and Canada. After the closing, product was relocated to a new distribution warehouse in Lakewood, Washington near Tacoma.
The casket warehouse will be operated through Suhor's Clackamas, Oregon location. Ron Scholz, former manager of the Salem, Oregon warehouse, has been named Regional Marketing Manager for Washington and is joined by Kevin White as the new delivery driver.
On November 30, 2010 Suhor Industries closed on the purchase of Martin Casket Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Martin Casket follows much the same business model as Suhor's casket division, Signet Supply. They service customers out of their Pittsburgh and Erie, Pennsylvania warehouses with a blend of domestic and foreign quality caskets.
The acquisitions of these two companies underscores the commitment of Suhor Industries to expand into allied businesses for future growth of the company.
