Sauder Funeral Products Adds Three New Classic Casket Designs

Sauder Funeral Products, a wholly-owned entity of Sauder Woodworking Co., has introduced a trio of new caskets in classic designs. Similar styles have been on the market for many years, but at much higher prices. Sauder now provides affordable alternatives to those traditional caskets, giving families the look and value they want.

The Bancroft casket comes in a light Amber Pine finish and has dual lugs. The Langston is a 2-button oak casket with one continuous lug in a traditional medium Carolina Oak finish. And the Windham casket comes in a new Sauder finish, a beautiful American Cherry, with individual lugs – also new for Sauder. All have a full-adjustable lift bed with tilt at the head, swing arms, and all three are also available in full couch.

“Based on our extensive research, we’ve learned that families

 want the best possible value when choosing a casket and they prefer wood over metal. These three new classic caskets give families what they want at a price they can afford,” said Dan Sauder, Vice President of Engineering and New Markets for parent company Sauder Woodworking Co.

Sauder caskets are also eco-friendly, one of the many benefits to Sauder’s American-made casket line. Sauder’s engineered wood caskets burn more efficiently than solid wood and wood veneer caskets, and this saves time and fuel in crematories. Additionally, the caskets are built with an environmentally responsible material made from 97% recycled high quality soft and hardwood trimmings and other formerly wasted wood products that remain after the milling of lumber and plywood.

Headquartered in Archbold, Ohio, since its founding in 1934, Sauder Woodworking Co. is North America’s leading producer of RTA furniture and the nation’s fifth largest residential furniture manufacturer. Sauder Woodworking Co. is a privately-held, third generation, family-run business. Subsidiaries include: Progressive Furniture Inc., a designer and importer of wood bedroom, dining and accent furniture; and Sauder Manufacturing Company, a leader in church, educational and health care seating.
