Aurora Casket Receives 2012 Tri-State Success Award

Nation's largest privately-held funeral service supplier recognized as one of Greater Cincinnati's fastest growing companies

March 26, 2012 - Cincinnati, OH - Cincy Magazine announced earlier this month that Aurora Casket Company won one of its Tri-State Success Awards. Given to companies in the area which have demonstrated growth and consistency, Aurora Casket garnered the distinction due to product quality and its success in the manufacturing industry.

“Aurora Casket’s unwavering dedication to producing quality handcrafted caskets is fundamental to its success,” says Eric Harmon, publisher and president, Cincy LLC.  “Despite the economy, Aurora Casket has posted increased revenue and provided more jobs. Cincy Magazine is proud to recognize this fine company with a 2012 Tri-State Success Award. Thriving businesses continue to build the strength of the Tri-state.”

In addition to funeral service supplies, Aurora assists clients with technology, business operations, continuing education, marketing and public relations. The company also sponsors various industry events, giving back into professional organizations and mortuary schools across the country.

“We have been able to achieve such high success by committing to service, looking at ourselves as a partner rather than a vendor,” says Marty Strohofer, director of creative marketing at Aurora. “We are planning to go farther in serving funeral homes in the future with Advisor, a new Internet platform we have developed that enables the families to work out all the details of planning a memorial service online.”
