As specialists in mortuary supplies, and ourselves heavy users of body bags, we grew concerned in the 1990s with the rising price of body bags. We wondered how this simple product could cost $30, $50, $70 or more? We learned that most body bags come from only a handful of manufacturers. We also learned that with persistence, it was possible to develop direct relations with the manufacturers that enable us to make bulk purchases of body bags at a fraction of their retail price. We started the body-bag division of AMS to offer these savings to AMS customers. Our inventory is warehoused in Denver, Colorado.
