Nation’s largest family-owned casket manufacturer receives highest marks in build quality and client service
Aurora, IN — In survey results recently published in Funeral Service Insider, a weekly subscription-based newsletter produced by Kates-Boylston Publications, Aurora Casket Company received the highest scores among casket manufacturers in categories of build quality and service.
“We have made huge investments and advancements in all of our manufacturing and logistics,” said Tim Dugan, Aurora’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “It’s nice to see that our customers notice and value this. And the credit goes to our hard-working team that creates this ‘Aurora Difference’ every day.”

“For funeral professionals, quality and service continue to be the most important factors when choosing a supplier,” Dugan added. “We measure what we call a ‘perfect order,’ — perfect quality, perfect service, perfect delivery. It is our goal to meet every customer commitment perfectly – we will continue to keep this measurement as a differentiation for Aurora.”
