It appears that Aurora Casket Company, now owned by Kohlberg Company, is starting to make personnel cuts.
We have received multiple emails from sources who reported that on Wednesday Kohlberg owned Aurora intensified personnel cuts by handing out pink slips to sales force and regional managers. Remaining personnel are predicting more cuts are on the way.

In the interview we did with Michael Quinn, CEO of Aurora Casket, a few weeks ago we specifically asked about personnel and sales rep changes to which Quinn did not hint at anything major happen in the near future.

We reached out to our contacts at Aurora Casket for comment on these reported personnel cuts, no response has been given.
Has anyone else heard reports of these personnel cuts?
It seems since the purchase of Aurora by Kohlberg the company has been pretty quiet which is raising concerns from independent funeral home owners.
The question being asked now is, “How long before Kohlberg finds another buyer for Aurora Casket Company?
