Consistent growth caused the need for larger facilities many times over the years and today the company is located at 3240 Monroe Street in a fifteen thousand square foot facility which is ideal for both present and future needs. "We are about twenty minutes from any of our close customers" says Tom Reid "and with four delivery trucks of various sizes this helps us maintain a reputation for fast efficient service."
Today Reid Casket Company is enjoying an anniversary of Thirty-Six years as an independent entity. Today the company slogan, coined by Tom Reid in 1968 and still proudly advertised today, serves as a mission statement, "Serving those who serve the community." Jim Reid agrees and sums it up: "Its our family helping a family business, helping the families who call them in time of need." Serving people gets into your blood it becomes a part of you and itís not about the money.
Small independent casket companies have always led the way in this industry. Fiberglass Caskets, Stainless Steel Caskets and Personalized Caskets have always been the hallmark of a small casket company. Referred to as Boutique Casket Companies by the large corporations, the Reid's see this as both a compliment and a strength. This is our niche where service and quality excel.
A small company has to position itself so it has only two types of competition, those unwilling to perform your function and those unable to perform your function. Reid Casket Company is continuing the change and grow, which will enables us to make products that have both meaning and function to those who select our caskets.
