Affordable Supply Company was started in 1993 by Dave Kolbe and Jay Amburgey. We found there to be a great need for funeral directors to be able to purchase their items from someone they knew and trusted. Between us, we combine over 40 years of serving funeral homes with our sales experience. The goal of ASCO is to offer funeral supply products at affordable prices. Along with our vendor partners, we strive to service our customers unlike anyone else.
