And why Matthews is the power behind the progress in pet cremation
Compared with just a few years ago the number of specialist pet crematoria has risen dramatically. Not just here in the UK, but we are witnessing a marked increase in pet cremation businesses all across the world. As the world’s leading specialist in bespoke pet cremation systems, Matthews Environmental Solutions is better placed than anyone else to monitor this remarkable business boom and we are proud to report that much of this growth is based on our own pet cremation technology that has seen over 4500 made in the UK pet cremation systems installed in over 50 countries.
There are a number of reasons behind this remarkable market expansion. One, of course, is the enormous increase in the number of caring pet owners who desperately want their beloved animal companions to have a fitting ‘last journey’ at the end of their lives.
Another reason is the outstanding development and innovations that we at Matthews have been able to incorporate into our pet cremation technology.
At one time a pet cremator was little different to an industrial waste incineration plant. Efficient? Yes. But sadly lacking in the kind of style, appearance, sensitivity and compassion that pet owners today are now insisting on.
Consequently, Matthews’ designers have revolutionised the appearance and practicality of today’s new generation of pet cremation systems. Most importantly we have developed the concept of the multi-chamber cremator so that pet owners are guaranteed that their own beloved pet will be individually cremated and they are assured that they will receive the ashes after the process if they so wish.
By designing a bespoke multi-chamber pet cremation system it also means we can incorporate different chamber sizes to match the needs of the crematorium owner in order to accommodate the vastly different sizes of pets. From the smallest family pets such as hamsters and guinea pigs, through to cats and dogs, right up to the largest pets including ponies and horses. The cremation of any size of pet can now be facilitated meaning that the cremation process becomes more practical and more cost effective for the pet crematorium operator.
Another major design feature that is now increasingly requested is that we incorporate a more customer-friendly façade for the cremator that is appropriate and acceptable for the increasing number of bereaved pet owners who wish to witness the ‘final journey’ of their beloved animal companion.
It is all thanks to our unrivalled knowledge and our engineering expertise that we have been instrumental in transforming the old ‘industrial‘ style pet cremators into a modern, caring, attractive, personal and customer-focused facility.
Today’s progressive pet cremation businesses now increasingly turn to Matthews when they are considering a new cremation system. Our world-renowned Surefire® range, plus the increasingly popular Matthews IEB range incorporate all the modern features pet crematorium owners are demanding, while our bespoke solution service also means that whatever features and facilities the owners require in terms of size, chamber configurations and space restrictions, they recognise that at Matthews we can satisfy every one of their requirements.
