The Batesville Casket Co. quietly closed its Norwalk warehouse at the end of 2013.

Officials said Thursday about eight employees were offered jobs at other locations.

The Norwalk building served as a small distribution center.

"I cannot speak for the company, but it is my understanding that they are consolidating some operations and offered employees opportunities in their other locations," said Ellen Heinz, director of the Norwalk Economic Development Corp.

Batesville Casket Company is a manufacturer of caskets and cremation urns. It is headquartered in Batesville, Ind.

In addition to Batesville, Indiana, there are factories in Batesville, Miss., Chihuahua, Mexico, Manchester, Tenn., Mexico City, Mexico, and Vicksburg, Miss.

A former outlet in Campbellsville, Kentucky, closed prior to 2000.
