Edgecombe and Capital City Join Forces With Aurora
Aurora, IN – Aurora Casket, the largest family-owned supplier in funeral service announced they were joining forces with Capital City Casket Company and Edgecombe Casket Company.
Capital City and Edgecombe Casket are owned by Dennis McEntire and Kaye Starnes and serve hundreds of independent funeral home professionals throughout most of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and D.C.
“Both Edgecombe and Capital City have a family tradition that has spanned multiple generations,” noted Dennis McEntire.
“Obviously Aurora shares our commitment to funeral service with the Barrott and Backman families remaining family-owned and operated for five generations,” Starnes added. “In this sense, our partnership is a perfect fit.”
“Kaye and Dennis are well respected by funeral professionals throughout the Southeast. By working together, we can serve our customers better than either of our companies could do working alone,” said Bill Backman, III, president of Aurora Casket.
Capital City operates out of Cayce, South Carolina. Edgecombe Casket Company operates out of Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Customers will continue to have access to the Edgecombe or Capital City products, in addition to Aurora products and services.
Founded in 1890, Aurora is the largest family-owned funeral service supplier. Aurora caskets are proudly made in the United States and Canada, with headquarters based in Aurora, Indiana. For more information about Aurora products and services, visit http://www.auroracasket.com.
