The VTU is an interest group for suppliers that supply to funeral directors, cemeteries, crematoriums, and mortuaries. The objective of the VTU is to represent the interests of its members and to promote their work in the field of supplies for the funeral industry and/or funeral services. The VTU was founded on 24 December 1993 and currently has around 100 members. The strength of the VTU is that it acts as a point of contact for many suppliers and organisations and represents the sector as a whole. VTU members are constantly kept informed about developments within the industry, which is made possible through mutual exchange of information. This is an important added value. Not only do members regularly receive newsletters, the VTU website (www.vtu-online.nl
) also plays an important role in providing information.
