Already well-known as a leading cremation products company, Starmark has set its sights on becoming the leading cost-effective solid wood casket supplier as well.  Designed by the R&D team at the Starmark headquarters in Indiana, these solid wood caskets are priced right and benefit from the Starmark team’s decades of experience in consumer market research and manufacturing know-how.

“Given the success of our solid wood burial caskets we debuted earlier this year, we are excited to introduce these new, low cost solid wood caskets that feature more traditional casket designs that both burial and cremation families will appreciate and funeral homes will value.” said Gerald Davis, President of Starmark.  “These new caskets reflect Starmark’s mission to make products that families want to select and funeral directors want to offer.”

“We’ve concentrated on cremation for so long, it’s easy to miss opportunities that have presented themselves on the burial side of the market,” commented Davis.  “These caskets fill the void left by other casket companies – making low cost, solid wood caskets.  And since they are appropriate for either burial or cremation, they can help reduce inventory carrying costs at the funeral home.”

While many other casket companies have moved production out of the United States, Starmark remains committed to manufacturing in the United States.   The new caskets are made from a combination of furniture grade plywood and locally-sourced poplar and oak hardwoods.  Each casket features environmentally friendly water-based stains and tailored interiors.

“By combining solid hardwood and furniture-grade plywood components, we are able to offer customers low priced, high value caskets made in America,” added Davis.  “These innovative caskets provide the same beauty as solid hardwood, but are stronger and more tolerant to temperature change and humidity.

These units are available through distributors, One Source Prime and directly from Starmark.  To learn more about Starmark and the new line of low cost caskets, visit or contact Starmark at 888-366-7335.
