MRF Innovates with Crescent Memorial

Over the years, MRF has had the pleasure of working with a variety of unique and advanced industries for the development of new products. Crescent Memorial was started by Terry Jackson in 1999 as a small family business in Tupelo, Mississippi. “We realized there was a need for high-quality products at a low price in the funeral home industry and decided that the best way to deliver this was to custom manufacture many of these products.”

Crescent Memorial’s distinctive take on their product offerings is what differentiates them from others within the industry. Their recent decision to implement a high-performance MRF graphite furnace for R&D promises to create an exciting new product for their industry. It will also give their customers another way to appreciate Crescent Memorial’s ability to go above and beyond the quality and advancement of their competitors and offer the market something unique and special for their loved ones.
