Our Continued Commitment
Link is a privately-owned company headquartered in Sioux Center, Iowa. Link started manufacturing mortuary equipment products in 1992. For over two decades, Link Mortuary Equipment has been committed to engineering premium solutions for mortuary vehicles that provide quality, safety, and value for our customers.
As Link’s family of products has grown so have our design, development, and manufacturing capabilities. Starting in the early 2000s, Link began to expand its facilities and employ state of the art manufacturing processes. The expansion featured a substantial testing and validation facility. By 2013, Link had added world-class machining equipment to compliment the array of CNC bending centers, robotic welding, and automated laser cutting systems. These investments and more have allowed Link to advance upon our ISO 14001 environmental certification and our IATF 16949:2016 automotive quality certification.
But designing and manufacturing great products is just a small part of Link. Our Midwestern roots and work ethic have resulted in an unwavering focus on our customer in everything we do. It’s our passion – and it’s what differentiates us. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to meet our customers’ expectations and guarantee their satisfaction. Our expectations are high… but so is the level of communications, feedback, and reward.
