How Kent Casket Industries Inc came to be:

The President of Kent Casket Industries has been working in the casket manufacturing industry for more than 40 years, supplying the funeral industry with middle and top end polished caskets. In all those years we {the manufacturing industry] took plain pine boxes and and stained them to make them look like exotic caskets. But in recent years the mantra "I just want to be buried in a plain pine box" has been quite insistent so we decided not to camouflage our plain pine boxes any more. Kent Casket Industries now only manufactures these very simple, but extemely well made, plain pine boxes.

It was only the pursuit for cheaper products in the furniture industry that opened the door to chipboard products into the casket industry; this more particularly for cremation caskets. We believe that in time to come, for ecological reasons, the cremation of chipboard coffins will become illegal as they are in parts of Europe.
