Aurora Casket Unveiling Revolutionary Bronze Marker at ICCFA
I did an interview last week with Marty Strohofer from Aurora Casket company about a new bronze memorial maker they will be unveiling at the ICCFA Convention this week. Below is a press release from Aurora and is followed by an audio interview they did with Connecting Directors last week.
Aurora Introduces New Bronze Memorial Markers
For more than 100 years, the technology involved in crafting bronze grave markers has not significantly evolved. Aurora Casket Company is aiming to change that with the introduction of its new Aurora Bronze Memorial products.
Aurora Bronze Memorials feature an aluminum core, encased entirely in bronze. This technology offers the same appearance, performance, and durability of traditional bronze markers, but at a significant savings to funeral homes and cemeteries.
?Aurora Bronze Memorials offer a significant advantage over traditional bronze markers,? said Tim Dugan, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Aurora. ?They provide the same classic look and appeal, at a more affordable price ? as much as 40 percent less than traditional bronze markers.?
Aurora has partnered with Michigan-based Whitehall Products to manufacture the Bronze Memorials using a process that has been tested and proven for more than a decade. Whitehall Products is the leading manufacturer of address plaques, weather vanes and other architectural accents for the home and garden.
?In addition, Aurora and Whitehall back the Aurora Bronze Memorials with the best warranty in the profession,? Dugan added. ?This offering is an extension of Aurora?s goal to provide the highest-value products and services to family funeral homes.?
Aurora is introducing the Aurora Bronze Memorial line at the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA) Convention from March 8th to 11th, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nev.
