Matthews International Corporation designs, manufactures, and markets memorialization products and brand solutions. Segments The company's products and operations comprise six business segments: Cemetery Products, Funeral Home Products, Cremation, Graphics Imaging, Marking and Fulfillment Systems, and Merchandising Solutions. Memorialization Products and Markets CEMETERY PRODUCTS The Cemetery Products segment manufactures and markets a full line of memorialization products used primarily in cemeteries. The segment's products, which are sold principally in the United States, Europe, Canada and Australia, include cast bronze memorials, granite memorials and other memorialization products. The segment also manufactures and markets architectural products that are produced from bronze, aluminum and other metals, which are used to identify or commemorate people, places, events and accomplishments. Memorial products include flush bronze and granite memorials, upright granite memorials and monuments, cremation memorialization products, granite benches, flower vases, crypt plates and letters, cremation urns, niche units, cemetery features and statues, along with other related products and services. Flush memorials are bronze plaques or granite memorials which contain personal information about a deceased individual (such as name, birth date, and death date), photos and emblems. Flush bronze and granite memorials are even or ‘flush’ with the ground. The segment's memorial products also include community and family mausoleums within North America. In addition, the segment’s other memorial products include bronze plaques, letters, emblems, vases, lights and photo ceramics that can be affixed to granite monuments, mausoleums, crypts and flush memorials. Principal customers for memorial products are cemeteries and memorial parks, which in turn sell the company's products to the consumer. Customers of the Cemetery Products segment can also purchase memorials and vases on a ‘pre-need’ basis. The ‘pre-need’ concept permits families to arrange for these purchases in advance of their actual need. Upon request, the company would manufacture the memorial to the customer’s specifications (e.g., name and birth date) and place it in storage for future delivery. Memorials in storage have been paid in full with title conveyed to each pre-need purchaser. The Cemetery Products segment manufactures a full line of memorial products for cremation, including urns in various sizes, styles and shapes, as well as standard and custom designed granite cremation pedestals and benches. The segment also manufactures bronze and granite niche units, which comprise various compartments used to display cremation urns in mausoleums and churches. In addition, the company also markets turnkey cremation gardens, which include the design and all related products for a cremation memorial garden. Architectural products include cast bronze and aluminum plaques, etchings and letters that are used to recognize, commemorate and identify people, places, events and accomplishments. The company's plaques are frequently used to identify the name of a building or the names of companies or individuals located within a building. Such products are also used to commemorate events or accomplishments, such as military service or financial donations. The principal markets for the segment's architectural products are corporations, fraternal organizations, contractors, churches, hospitals, schools and government agencies. These products are sold to and distributed through a network of independent dealers including sign suppliers, awards and recognition companies, and trophy dealers. FUNERAL HOME PRODUCTS The Funeral Home Products segment is a manufacturer and distributor of caskets and other funeral home products in North America. The segment produces and markets metal, wood and cremation caskets. Caskets are offered in various colors, interior designs, handles and trim in order to accommodate specific religious, ethnic or other personal preferences.
