2019 NFDA

SIOUX CENTER, Iowa, USA (September 24, 2019) — We’re exactly one month away from the 2019 NFDA Convention & Expo in Chicago. Billed as the world’s largest funeral industry event, professionals from around the United States and abroad will gather for a series of keynote speakers, education sessions and an exclusive preview of the products and services they need to grow their business in the coming years.

The team at Link CMP is busy gearing up for the show and you can find us in in Booth 1433 near the NFDA Tailgate Exchange in the middle of the exhibit hall. Along with our SS150 Single Deck, flower carts and casket truck showroom system, we’ll be talking to attendees about our latest innovation that will improve their productivity, the DD2000-XLC.

DD2000-XLC Showcased at 2019 NFDA

While it’s a sensitive subject to talk about, the growing obesity rate in America is one of the fundamental issues facing funeral service providers and mortuary professionals. The DD200-XLC was developed in response to customer feedback and requests for a larger deck system. It’s the industry’s first double-deck system, as well as the first capable of accommodating today’s oversized cots. The DD2200-XLC fits inside most of today’s popular cargo vans and can either accommodate:

  • One standard and one oversized cot or cremation container on each of its two levels.
  • Or four standard cots, four cremation containers, two air trays or two caskets when fully loaded.

The electric-powered upper deck can be raised and lowered with the flip of a switch, allowing one person to easily load, transport and unload. You can read more about this new innovation and the vehicles its suited for in our official announcement.

If you’re attending the 2019 NFDA Convention I hope you’ll stop by to say hello, learn more about how our products can improve your productivity, or discuss the challenges you’re looking to overcome. We value that feedback and use it to solve your challenges. If you would like to schedule a meeting with myself or Ryan DeWit at the show, please let me know.
