The back-to-back record months to start 2018 come on the heels of a record-setting year that saw 54,570 units sold in 2017, marking SCI’s sixth consecutive annual sales record. Year-to-date sales through the first two months of 2018 are outpacing the previous year by 12.2 per cent, with a combined 6,475 units sold in January and February.
