Aurora Casket Acquires Memorial Stationery Provider Rob-Win Press

AURORA, Ind. — Aurora Casket, the largest family-owned supplier in funeral service has acquired Rob-Win Press, a memorial stationery company based in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

For more than 70 years, Rob-Win Press has printed and manufactured high-quality memorial stationery and register books for funeral professionals across North America.

“Many of the leading funeral service providers offer Rob-Win memorial products to their families,” said Bill Backman III, president of Aurora Casket. “Their reputation for American-made quality products is highly regarded, and this acquisition allows us to offer a broader solution to our funeral home clients. Aurora is singularly committed to funeral service providers and helping them create an honorable closure to every life.”

Aurora will be introducing a full assortment of stationery products later this year. The manufacture and assembly will continue at Rob-Win’s facilities in Pennsylvania. Current Rob-Win customers should continue to contact Rob-Win for orders.

“Aurora is a recognized leader in funeral service and we are extremely excited with the opportunities to expand our offering and distribution to their clients,” said Thomas R. Cook, president of Rob-Win. Cook and Edwin Jarvis purchased the company in 1977 and have introduced many product and technology innovations at Rob-Win, including the broadest offering of the licensed designs of artist Lena Liu.
