Company Profile

Joseph DeFontes established the company in 1953 in a small Massachusetts town when he recognized the need to provide lot markers for the cemetery industry. As he perfected the markers, he found that the one-pour chill method formed a superior marker and began the sale of these markers.

The company has since moved to Canaan, New Hampshire, where we continue to manufacture the markers utilizing the same procedures. We are a small family business and do not distribute or resell any markers.  Our products are produced at our location. We pride ourselves in the fact that our manufacturing is efficient, our quality is superior and our price and delivery is second to none. We do not have any "hidden" charges for letters, numbers etc.  Our shipping charges are never inflated, and we do not add any additional handling fees, we simply pass along the shipping charges as identified by our carriers.

We trust that you will find the markers that meet your needs in our product offerings, however, if you would like to discuss other markers or any other “special” style of marker please give us a call. 

Thank you for your interest in the 
Joseph DeFontes Co. 

We hope to hear from you soon!
