Astral Holds Distributor Seminar

Astral Distributor Seminar

LYNN, IND. – Astral hosted an Astral Distributor Seminar Aug. 6-8.

The event included a day of action-packed racing at the Winchester Speedway, the world’s fastest ½-mile track in Winchester, Indiana. Following a day of exciting racing, the group enjoyed an Italian feast at the Randolph Inn & Suites in Winchester.

The educational portion of the seminar took place at Astral’s corporate facilities in Lynn. The group spent the first day discussing Astral’s extensive product line, hearing about improvements from each department to better serve the distributors, sharing ideas to improve their businesses and they became the first distributors to see several new pieces of marketing materials for products that were available for immediate distribution.

In addition, Jack Lechner Jr., president of the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science addressed the group about his experiences in the funeral industry as well as how mortuary students are being groomed to better facilitate the families they will serve. The event wrapped up with a dinner at Referee’s Bar & Grille in Winchester, a plant tour and a Q & A session.

“Without our valued, family-owned, independent distributors, we could not be one of the leading manufacturers of 18 gauge, 20 gauge and stainless steel caskets that we are today. We owe a lot to our distributor customers for their loyalty and continued support of Astral products,” said Astral Distributor Sales Coordinator.
