Coleman Milne Celebrate Most Successful NFE Yet

The 2019 NFE was a roaring success for Coleman Milne with a record number of new vehicle orders taken on stand.
This year’s show marked our first time exhibiting in Hall 1 where we showcased a fresh and sharp new look, signifying the future direction of our business. The event also marked a first-time appearance for several new additions to what is now the broadest range of funeral vehicles in Europe.
Following their launch in 2018, our Norwood & Rosedale self-charging hybrids made their NFE debut in our outside display, while the new E-Class Continental completely stole the show! This new variant of the popular E-Class hearse – also outfitted with our new Vogue Grey deck – was a resounding hit with visitors over the three days, including new NAFD President, David Barrington.
In recognition of the evolving funeral market, our display vehicles this year also included our Ceremony Appropriate removal vehicle – based on the Citroen Dispatch, this innovative vehicle is the first of its kind and incorporates a series of ideal features to accommodate the rising demand for direct cremations.
As well as new vehicles, the NFE also served as the formal unveiling of our Aftercare service and its accompanying app, where our customers have access to a range of features including our nationwide network of service centres and direct communications with the aftercare team.

Reflecting on the show, National Sales Manager Graham Clow commented:

“I’m thrilled with the outcome of this year’s show. It was a resounding triumph for our engineering and production teams, who have worked tirelessly to deliver yet another exquisite Coleman Milne vehicle.”

On behalf of the team, we send a very special thank you to everyone who visited us at the show and, rest assured, we are already looking to the 2021 event!
