Sauder Funeral Products Hires New Sales & Marketing Director

From a press release.

Sauder Funeral Products recently selected industry veteran Mark Klingenberger to lead its sales and marketing efforts. 

Klingenberger previously served Wilbert Funeral Services as a vice president in a number of sales and marketing roles. He is perfectly positioned to help Sauder Funeral Products expand its market share by continuing to meet the changing needs of U.S. distributors.

“We are thrilled to welcome Mark to our team,” said Dan Sauder, executive vice president of engineering and new markets for Sauder Woodworking Co. “I am confident that we will benefit immensely from his leadership and experience.”  

Made from wood—for burial or cremation—and handcrafted by a family-owned American company, Sauder Funeral Products are the future of the casket industry.  As a wholly-owned entity of Sauder Woodworking Co., Sauder Funeral Products leverages decades of manufacturing experience to meet the needs of a changing funeral industry. Its handcrafted caskets replicate the look, feel, and quality of solid wood at a much more attainable price. All Sauder Funeral Products are made from 97 percent-recycled, high-quality soft and hardwood trimmings that remain after the milling of lumber and plywood. This material is eco-friendly as well as economical.  Visit for more information.
