Mid-America College of Funeral Service Visits Astral

Mid America mortuary school visits Astral

LYNN, Ind. – Astral recently welcomed the Mid-America College of Funeral Service to its Lynn corporate headquarters, which was the school's first visit to Astral.

The students were taken on a detailed tour of Astral’s manufacturing facility and also participated in an educational seminar. Astral showed the students how they, as future funeral directors, can offer good looking, affordable caskets to families, while still maintaining reasonable profits. The students were able to ask questions, familiarize themselves with Astral products, and get to know Astral’s personnel.

“We were very honored and excited to share our story and show our products and facilities to Mid-America. We are looking forward to continuing our relationship with the school and the future funeral directors,” said Charlie Shaw, CEO and chairman of the board.

Astral Industries manufactures 18-gauge, 20-gauge and stainless steel caskets, as well as supplies cremation and wood products. For more information, call 800-278-7252 or visit
