We are pleased to continue our series of Sponsor Spotlight articles in which we profile from time to time a different CFSA member company that has chosen to sponsor a program or activity. CFSA is very fortunate to have many generous companies that financially support the association during the year, and this is an opportunity for us to thank them and to profile their company for the entire membership.
We continue the series this month with C.P. Inc., a longtime member but relatively new sponsor of CFSA events. Here are the responses to our questions from C.P. Inc.’s management.
When did your company first join CFSA, and what do you value most about your membership?
C.P. Inc. joined CFSA in September 1982, and has been involved and a supporting member for 32 years. We value the professional and personal relationships developed within the casket industry, and CFSA is an organization that brings the industry together to support the growth and understands the clarity of the changing times and direction of the funeral industry.
Why has your company become a sponsor of the association?
We recognize the multitude of ways to be involved and support CFSA. There are many different efforts to help build the success of an organization. This year, we at C.P. Inc. wanted to do something in a different way to support the organization.
Tell us a little about your company.
C.P. Inc. has been a custom-engineered coatings manufacturer since 1946, coming up on 69 years in the industry. We manufacture coatings for a variety of industries.
