We have reported much here on Batesville Casket Company, and the declining casket sales due to the rise of Cremation and Chinese Caskets. This has been brought on by the economy and consumers demanding to pay less for Funeral cost.
Now a recent article has revealed the goings on inside of Batesville Casket Co. It’s dog eat dog.
It’s not perfect here,” said Carr. “But we’ve got to have our jobs. We’ve got cremation, and competition from China. And then within the company, it’s dog-eat-dog when it comes to one plant over another. Everyone wants to survive.” In death care, as in just about all manufacturing today, that survival inevitably entails the demise of others.
My opinion and statement on this:This does not even mention Batesville giving deep discounts to almost every Funeral Home in the land.
