Astral Increases Service in Indiana

Due to the increased demand for Astral caskets in Indiana, Astral recently expanded their distribution with the delivery of products out of their manufacturing facility in Lynn, Indiana. With this increased distribution, Astral is pleased to announce the addition of a new sales representative. Doug Shilts, an Indiana native, is no stranger to the funeral industry due to his prior 26-year employment with Astral in various capacities. Doug’s wealth of knowledge of Astral’s product line will allow him to be a major asset to his customers. Doug completed Astral’s extensive month-long training program at the corporate office before being placed in his territory.

“Astral is known for offering high eye appeal caskets at very affordable prices to funeral homes across the United States. With the combination of servicing Indiana funeral homes direct from our manufacturing facility, and with the existing valued distributor customers currently in place, funeral homes are guaranteed an option for keeping their costs down while still being able to offer high quality merchandise to the families they serve,” says Billy Emrick, Senior Sales Coordinator. We are ecstatic about the addition of Doug to our sales team and look forward to being able to service additional funeral homes in the state of Indiana.”

Astral Industries manufactures 20 gauge, 18 gauge, and stainless steel caskets in their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Lynn, Indiana.
