Astral Holds National Sales Meeting

Astral Industries recently held its annual national sales meeting at the home office in Lynn, Indiana. The meeting highlighted Astral’s accomplishments over the past year and also awarded those sales representatives who had far exceeded annual benchmarks.  Doug Roberts, Williamsburg, Kentucky, was awarded Sales Representative of the Year.  Rick Klepacz, Chicago, Illinois, was presented with Rookie of the Year, and Curtis Cox, also from Williamsburg, Kentucky, was given the award for the Most Promotional Caskets Sold.

The entire sales and management team attended a number of workshops and presentations on updated product offerings and recent product upgrades. There were also several small group sessions which covered topics that reinforced what sets Astral apart from the competition as one of the leading manufacturers of 18 gauge, 20 gauge, and stainless steel caskets, while creating opportunities for in-house networking and cross-training. 

“It’s always a treat to get all of our sales reps under the same roof,” said Charlie Shaw, CEO of Astral Industries.  “It gives us a chance to reconnect on both a professional and personal level, learning from each other’s successes and challenges.  I look forward to another great year of helping families honor their loved ones with affordable and attractive products.”
