Covington Casket expanding to serve North Alabama
Published 11:00 am Saturday, July 9, 2022
Covington Casket Company President and CEO Alan Williamson has announced that his company will soon have a new distribution center in Cullman, Alabama.
“I’m excited about this new location because north Alabama is a rapidly growing area in the state. In addition, Cullman is smack dab in the middle of some of Alabama’s largest metro areas and cities. It will be our largest facility and warehouse several hundred caskets,” he said.
The new location will serve family-owned funeral homes within a 90-mile radius.
“While this location is new, I’ve made numerous friends in this area through the various funeral organizations in the state. Everyone has been very supportive of my decision. I’m very excited about the future of Covington Casket in north Alabama around the Cullman area. Our goal in the next year is to expand even further into Tennessee and reach the Nashville and Chattanooga markets.”
The new distribution center should be open by the middle of the summer.
“I look forward to meeting and serving our friends in North Alabama. Our message to North Alabama funeral homes is this: if you’re looking to receive exceptional service and offer your families beautiful, high-quality caskets, I welcome your phone call now,” Williamson said.
Covington Casket serves more than 280 funeral homes in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
Covington Casket is a family-owned business and has been in operation since 1924 when the first location was established in Opp. Covington Casket operated on North Cotton Street in downtown Andalusia from 1925 until 2021. The family-owned business expanded last summer and moved to its current location at 400 Progress Drive in Andalusia’s Industrial Park.
