DANVILLE, Ill. – “Want to grow? Come see what’s new at Trigard.” That’s how Trigard challenged funeral professionals for the 2013 NFDA Convention and Expo in Austin – and attendees weren’t disappointed. Trigard unveiled two new products: the Serenity® Infant/Child Remembrance Bear Ceremony and cast bronze recrafting service.
For memorials that need more than a quick buff, Trigard is now handling complete cast bronze recrafting in-house. While many attendees have experience using in-cemetery kits to refinish cast bronze memorials, this new service requires that the memorials are shipped to Trigard for extra care and recrafting. But Trigard’s program goes beyond rejuvenating memorials. Trigard Memorials has developed a toolkit to help cemeteries and funeral homes reach their customers and generate revenue. The complete program promises to help funeral professionals develop new recurring revenue streams, build deeper relationships with existing customers, rejuvenate older cemetery sections and enhance pre-need programs.
The Serenity Remembrance Bear is a new interactive graveside ceremony inspired by the Healing Treeburial vault. During the ceremony, a special poem is read, followed by friends and family taking a teddy bear Memory Ring as a keepsake. At this year’s convention, attendees got a first look at the custom Appliqués® and teddy bear Memory Rings. The Serenity Remembrance Bear is available for all Serenity sizes and colors.
