Batesville Recognized by Newsweek as one of America's Most Trustworthy Companies in 2024

BATESVILLE, Ind., April 24, 2024 – Building on a legacy of quality, innovation and service, Batesville, a leading provider of caskets, cremation products and technology solutions in North America, has been named to Newsweek’s list of Most Trustworthy Companies in America for 2024. This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. Batesville achieved a top 25 ranking in the Consumer Goods category, alongside a variety of global brand leaders, coming in at number 22 out of 40 in its first appearance.

“For more than a century, Batesville has focused on helping grieving families honor their loved ones with dignity and respect and supporting their healing journey,” said Chris Trainor, CEO of Batesville. “To know that we have earned their trust during this difficult process is truly the highest honor we could receive.”

The Most Trustworthy Companies in America were chosen using a holistic approach for evaluating trust across three main pillars: consumer, investor and employee trust. All companies headquartered in the U.S. with over $500 million in revenue were considered in the independent study. Rankings were determined based on input from approximately 25,000 U.S. residents, a review of more than 97,000 evaluations and analysis of 532,000 online mentions. Respondents were asked about companies they know well, and among other things, if they believed individual companies treated their customers fairly, treated their employees fairly and would be good long-term investments.

Batesville is the first death care product and technology supplier to receive this award. Headquartered in southeastern Indiana, the company has been a trusted partner to licensed funeral homes for more than a century. From its early days as a manufacturer of high-quality caskets, the company has grown to offer an expansive portfolio of burial and cremation products, innovative technology solutions for funeral homes and cemeteries, profit-enhancing merchandising tools, and an unparalleled collection of personalization and memorialization offerings designed to celebrate a life well lived.
