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 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.” . 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.

Cremation, a growing market

Accepted by the Catholic Church only since 1973, cremation is now part of funeral rituals.  Thus, it has an impact on the crematoria.

“At first, they were in remote rooms. Now, cremation being part of the farewell ceremony, crematoria can be installed next to the room where families gather,” explains Martin Trudeau, Sales Director of Carrier Mausoleums Construction. “As a result, orders can be personalized. For example, funeral home or cemetery logos, lights or colors can be added on the front of the crematoria.”

Carrier Mausoleums Construction is the only authorized retailer of Pyrox, specialized in cremation products.  With the cremation market expanding, funeral homes and cemeteries wish to offer a full range of services to their clientele.

“You have to keep in mind that environmental standards also change. That’s why our designers try to work ahead of future standards so the products, that represent a long-term investment for buyers, are always lawfull,” points out Christine LeSage, Administrative Assistant, Sales and Marketing.

As cremation rate is close to 70% in Quebec, manufacturing is on the rise.

“Our engineers are passionate about their work. They adjust to any situation, like the size of the deceased,” says LeSage. “The goal is always to optimize the crematoria operation, such as ash recovery and heat recovery systems among others,” she adds.

Carrier Mausoleums Construction wishes to expand, as for all of their other lines of products, to the US market for crematoria, currently centered in Quebec and Canada.


“It’s a competitive market,” says Martin Trudeau, “but since crematoria are designed and built here, it’s easier to offer an excellent after-sales service, paramount in this field,” he concludes.Pyrox Rev3

A final resting place

bannière Blogue 1 EN

Many decisions have to be taken when a death occurs. One of these important decisions is without any doubt the choice of a final resting place for the deceased body and/or the cremated remains. Unfortunately, many choices are available and it could be very difficult to make a decision if these choices have not been explained carefully. Only three options are available in regard to final disposition of the deceased’s body: traditional burial in ground, entombment (crypt) and cremation. In regard to that last option, it is essential that the process of disposition do not ends there. More options are available in regard to cremated remains disposition: Burial of urn, inurnment (niche in a columbarium), keepsake, jewelry or bring cremated remains back home. It is important to choose a permanent resting place for the urn even though a jewelry or a keepsake was chosen by the family. The permanent resting place will help the family members to have a referral place to remember the loved one.
Inurnment is a disposition mode of cremated remains that has been progressing in popularity over the past years and still does. Columbarium have evolved in design and in options offered to families. The choice and type of columbarium to be offered to families also comes with its load of questions: How many types of niches should we offer to families? How many niches should my columbarium has? Should we offer glass front niches only? And many more.

The Value of Memorialization: Glass-front Niches

Did you know that cremations have almost doubled in just the last ten years? That’s over a million cremations in North America annually. Are your current facilities equipped to deal with that demand? Do you have the room and aesthetics needed to make a superior resting place?

Consider the benefits of glass-front niches. This columbaria style has many benefits not found in other funerary forms. That holds particularly true when you choose builders who really know their craft.

Before you renovate or extend your current facilities, ponder the consummate and perennial craftsmanship CMC brings. Our glass-front niches will give your space dignity and durability that will endure.

Your operations are too important for cookie cutter solutions—you need serious craftsmen and serious businessmen. Here’s what we’re offering:

Glass-front Niches by CMC_Personalized RemembrancesAs we’ve said, cremation has never been more popular. Investing in a columbarium is the best return on your investment. They require much smaller footprints than ground plots or mausoleum crypts, can be scaled to any capacity, and are simple to maintain. Plus, their materials stave off the ravages of time and the elements indefinitely.

Glass-front niches are particularly profitable. In fact, they have the highest earning potential of any cemetery space. Their sparkling beauty and sense of connection give them an allure unmatched in other funerary practices. You’ll be astounded by the demand—our niches will be far from fallow. That, and CMC niches reliably command higher retail sales prices and demand than any of our competitors—Matthews, KMI, or anyone else’s products.
