Carrier Mausoleum Construction, specialized in funeral buildings, manufactures customized columbarium since 1998. The designs created by the company’s architecture department in Montreal are original and meet the specific needs of funeral homes and cemeteries, which often are at their first acquisition. “We have a unique approach,” says Sales and Marketing Assistant, Christine LeSage. “We rely on a long-term partnership with our customers. We listen to their needs and we draw up a project that suits their pace, in stages.” Sales Director Martin Trudeau adds: “We build and install our own columbarium. It means there is no third-party involved. Clients deal with us directly from A to Z.” Their out of the ordinary customer service led to the opening of a second plant in California last February, to meet the growing US market. Since they know how to adapt, they even designed a columbarium that is earthquake resistant. “We build 8 to 12 niches columbarium as well as 3000 ones. What’s important is that it is profitable for our clients,” says Trudeau.
Glass niches are amongst the best sellers at Carrier Mausoleum Construction. Since the 1990s, materials have improved as the way they are built. Novelties include concave curved niches. It usually takes about 90 days between the time the contract is signed and the installation of the columbarium.
“It is a growing industry. As cremations are increasing, funeral homes and cemeteries have to adjust to this new reality,” concludes Trudeau.
