In 1910, Anton Scharfe built his first coffin in his workshop in Tommerup on the scenic Danish island of Funen – the island where Hans Christian Andersen was born. It was here he founded his undertaking business. Over a century, and four generations later, the Scharfe family still manufactures coffins and abides by the principles established by Anton Scharfe. Today Tommerup Kister is one of Denmark’s leading coffin manufacturers, working with the same honesty and respect for the profession as when the company was founded over a hundred years ago. Through the years the company has increased its focus on the environment. Sustainability is now one of Tommerup Kister's guiding principles, covering all aspects of the business from the factory environment through to the end product.
Our motto: What we borrow from nature, we give back to nature. This is one of the reasons why We Plant a Tree for Every Coffin We Sell.
"Kister" is the Danish word for coffin.
