Concrete Burial Vault Manufacturer Finds Northwest Arkansas Area Better Location For His Business Than Most Large Cities By BJLLIE. JINES Spriifgdalc-iSpccial'A few years ago a man in Denver, Colo., named C. A. Pile decide;! to relocate and establish a concrete burial vault business. He set nul w i t h an open mind as to H location, and after a careful survey of several states, started his business in Northwest Arkansas near Lowell. "Why? The answer lies in the survey itself. Pile is not n man to act,on impulse, lie liku.s lo luok before" he leaps. He and his wife carefully screened the states they covered in their que.y.l for ;i spot on which to light. Thiij they did by inquiring at the various towns along tho way tibout the nearest K"MUSH concrete vault business. They took~~mcntal notes also, often by falling in with a funeral procession. At the cemetery, they were able to discern what type of h u r i a l vault was used, and how the service was conducted. And they learned much about the areas they visited through the people. Across Nebraska, Kansas, ]owa, Missouri. Oklahoma and into Arkansas the couple traveled. Arkansas was the last state they visilrd before returning to Mr. Pile's construction work in Denver. They were impressed by the Arkansas countryside, but it was not the freshness of the memory or the beauty of the country that brought the Piles hack to Arkansas soon afterward. ]n his methodical way, Mr. Pile w.ent back to Colorado with the statistics, figures and technical information. - lie could quote the population of Northwest Arkansas, and prove the fiyurc was believable because of the thickly populated rural areas. He could produce fiuures showing heavy bank deposits. And--an Importint angle to him--he know that there was then only one other concrete burial vault company In Ark»n.ia». Rir.l Scoffl A short time after opening his business at Lowell, Mr. Pile, visiting t larfie city in a neighboring state, told a concrete burial vault manufacturer there that he had located his business in No'rthwcsl Arkansas. The other vault maker seoffed at his choice of a location. But the old saw about "he who laughs last" held true, for when the Pile business was f i r m l y established Mr. Pile learned he made and' sold more vaults In a year than did his city friend. The Lowell man accounts for this by reasoning that the population hero in Northwest Arkansas is more stationary t h a n Is the population of a city/ The Concrete Burial Vault Company, as the business is named, ia housr.'J in the its owner planned when he came to the Ozarks five and a half years a«o. Then, a building was rented for the business, and Mr. Pile lacked much of the equipment he boasts today. Now he uses the finest type vault molds and other equipment. Son In Th«' BuiiniM In making vaults, a rich mixture of concrete is poured under air pressure to achieve the quality and smoothness desired. .· After coming out of the mold, the vault is ready for its coaling of asphall and to be painted with a gold, copper or silver finish. The finished vault is placed in the display room i lo await sale. It may be used anywhere 'in Northwest Arkansas, Northeast Oklahoma, or Southwest Missouri. The owner's son, Paul Pile of Rogers, is associated with him in the business, and addtiional labor is required loday. There is little t i m e . f o r idleness at the Concrete Burial Vault Company. Each day the molds must be emptied, ollect and refilled. There may be a vault to be used that 'day also, which means a grave set-up must be arranged and the vault delivered to the cemetery. The f i r m also makes septic- tanks for use in this area. .Believes In Concrete Concrete is not just a means to an end with Mr. Pile--he is convinced the material has all the qualities claimed for it. And he practices what he preaches. Concrete is used profusely in the building he has just completed lo house both his business and his home. One of the two m a i n entrances of the building opens into the display room of the company. The other swings open to the neat, comfortable home of Mr. and Mrs. Pile. A caller will find the housinc wing immaculate, for the Piles are Pennsylvania Dutch and Mrs. Pile has not strayed from the ancestral tradition of cleanliness. So established in their business, and so rooted in their new home are the Piles that a newcomer would think the couple dyed-in- the-wool Arkansans. In a way they arc, for through their own survey and experimentation the Piles have proved that Arkansas is a land of opportunity. And in doing so, they have learned much about this section that many people born and reared here have never dreamed of.
