Wilbert Funeral Service, Inc.
Pierce Mortuary Colleges is excited to announce a corporate scholarship for ICCFA Crematory Operator and Arranger Certifications at Pierce Mortuary Colleges – also made possible through the generosity of Wilbert Funeral Service, Inc. Wilbert decided to create a funeral service scholarship to honor this critical field of study for students who attend a Pierce Mortuary College. This scholarship will help ensure that every student will receive financial support to complete the certifications and enter into the workforce with additional education. Pierce Mortuary Colleges is a proud member of The Wilbert Group.
Wilbert Funeral Services, Inc. (WFSI) develops burial vault technology and fabrication standards, licensing the manufacturing of the burial vaults to a network of nearly 200 Licensees throughout the United States and Canada. A portion of the 200 locations are owned and operated by WFSI. To ensure Wilbert’s rigorous standards are met, a team of field service engineers visit and inspect all locations on a regular basis. Our inspection standards are the most stringent in the industry and cover vault manufacturing specifications and procedures as well as service standards. Wilbert Licensees manufacture the burial vaults and provide delivery and set-up services at the gravesite. Gravesite service can include set up of a tent, chairs and grass covering (greens) for a comfortable, dignified service along with equipment to seal the vault aboveground and lower it into the grave. The highest-quality burial vault, built to exacting standards, combined with the attentive service provided by local Wilbert Licensees and offices. That's the Wilbert experience which supports funeral professionals in providing the best possible service experience for families. Wilbert and its network also provide cremation urns, mementos, keepsake jewelry and other memorialization products.
