Thacker Caskets announced Wednesday its recent acquisition of Quality Professional Products, also known as “QPP.” The acquisition was the largest acquisition in Thacker’s history and was made official Monday.
Quality Professional Products was founded in 2007 by Ron Cook to help funeral homes improve their gross profits by providing them with superior casket values and service. President of QPP Jeff Pulver said, “We are delighted to join forces with Thacker Caskets. This acquisition creates a formidable new Thacker/QPP co-brand that will continue the great service and product value our customers are accustomed to in addition to the merchandising strength and product breadth that Thacker brings to the marketplace.
“Thacker Caskets is a family of high integrity, serious minded people who are committed to being the best they can be. They continually adapt by showing excellent leadership and innovation within our industry. We are honored to become part of their outstanding company.”
It was of utmost importance to QPP that they found a partner that would continue to meet their high standards of steadfast reliability and outstanding customer service. In addition, it was important for QPP to partner with another independently owned business with the capability of understanding the value of building and maintaining long-term relationships with high integrity.
CJ Thacker, owner and CEO of Thacker Caskets, excitedly commented on the acquisition. “We have silently watched and very much admired the ability of Quality Professional Products to grow their market share so significantly in such a short period of time. Their strategy in approaching the market is unique and undoubtedly successful. By partnering together, Thacker and QPP will experience a synergy that makes both companies better together!”
Thacker Caskets has been providing innovative products, made in the United States for over 80 years. A commitment to customer service has been a cornerstone of the business since its inception and their new customers in Michigan can expect the same level of dependability to be passed on to them. Quality Professional Products customers can trust that the level of customer service they have come to expect will still be met by Thacker Caskets.
From the very beginning, Thacker’s mission has been to be the most trusted supplier to more families by providing an honest product at an honest price, with honest service. The acquisition of Quality Professional Products is just another step by Thacker to maintain its high standard of customer satisfaction with high-quality products.
Quality Professional Products and Thacker Caskets are both excited about the acquisition and look forward to working together to ensure all of their customers are taken care of with the utmost respect and care.
