NORTHLAKE, Ill. – Frigid Fluid Co. recently participated in the funeral industry trade exhibition in Poznan, Poland. The exhibition, one of the largest in Central and Eastern Europe for the funeral industry, brought together vendors and visitors from across Poland as well as Russia, Germany, the Balkans and as far away as Iceland.
Frigid Fluid Co. exhibited its industry-leading lowering devices that have been exported to six continents for many decades. “European sales continue to expand,” said Robert M. Pine, who represented Frigid at the three day exhibition, “with Eastern Europe becoming an area of solid growth potential as incomes rise and Western rituals take hold.”
A sign of this process was at the internment of flight crew members from the airplane crash in Katyn in which several senior officials in the Polish government also lost their lives. The burial ceremony for the crew, laid side by side, was performed using Frigid lowering devices.
“We are very pleased with the results of the exhibition,” Pine said. “A significant number of firm orders were taken; additional quotations were requested; and many contacts were made with end users and potential distributors.”
Founded in 1892 as a manufacturer of embalming fluids and funeral supplies, in 1918 Frigid invented and brought to market the first mechanical casket lowering device, of which it continues to be the premier manufacturer world-wide.
