Not only has Thacker Caskets vertically integrated its casket manufacturing, but we have also integrated our component part production.
While manufacturing our own component parts saves our company money that we are able to pass along to funeral directors, more importantly it gives our company quality control of the component parts we use in our caskets. If there is a problem with a component part, we are able to quickly resolve the issue as opposed to waiting on one of our vendors to solve the issue.
Casket hardware and handles are the biggest component parts that Thacker manufactures ourselves. Approximately 75% of the caskets produced by Thacker Casket Manufacturing have handles and hardware that are made in house to our own quality specifications and requirements.
Other component parts that are manufactured by Thacker include all cardboard material, rubber gaskets, interior clips, decals, embroideries, etc.
