Our Story

Sauder furniture established in 1934
About Sauder Funeral Products
Established in 1934, we are a third-generation, family-owned company located in Archbold, Ohio. In 2007, we applied decades of furniture manufacturing experience to create a revolutionary line of affordable funeral caskets that provides incredible value for today’s families.

Our proprietary technology and innovative spirit helped us develop deep roots in the funeral industry. We address the changing needs of customers by providing value-priced quality products and unparalleled service. Hand built and finished in the finest wood patterns, our caskets offer families a no-compromise value.

Why Caskets
TVs keep getting bigger, desktop computers are giving way to laptops and microwaves are being built into kitchen cabinets. The marketplace around our products was changing and we knew that we had to adapt to remain relevant. We sat down with our internal team to brainstorm new product ventures. Long-time employee Larry Holland will always be remembered for his cheeky suggestion to start building “underground furniture.” His idea was initially discarded, but later revisited and explored by Myrl Sauder. While it’s unlikely that caskets were what Larry had in mind, his comment planted the seed for what would become Sauder Funeral Products.
