Foundation Partners Group Expands to the Dairy State

Orlando, FL – Foundation Partners Group (FPG), a leading provider of innovative funeral, cemetery and cremation experiences and products, has announced the acquisition of three funeral home locations in Wisconsin.  Nitardy Funeral Homes, with locations in Ft. Atkinson, Cambridge and Whitewater, have been added to the FPG family and represent the company’s entry into the Wisconsin market.

“We are always eager to partner with firms that align with our culture and values,” stated Brad Rex, FPG President and CEO.   “To do so with an experienced and well-respected team in a new and promising marketplace is all the more exciting.”

Nitardy Funeral Homes has provided excellent and compassionate care to south central Wisconsin families since 1932. Initially opening a funeral home in Johnson’s Creek, the Nitardy family began serving families in Ft. Atkinson in 1935 and in Cambridge in 1947.  In 2007, current Nitardy Funeral Home president and third generation funeral director David Nitardy opened the beautiful and spacious Whitewater facility that includes an on-site crematory.

“While our family business has grown successfully for more than 80 years, joining Foundation Partners Group will enable our funeral homes to achieve a new level of success,” said Nitardy. “With added resources and technology such as the ShareLife® multi-sensory experience, we are confident in being able to continue a great tradition of serving families personally and intentionally.”

“It has been an honor to get to know David Nitardy and the team at the Nitardy Funeral Homes,” stated Justin Baxley, Senior Vice President of Business Development at FPG.  “As we expand our presence in the Midwest, we are confident that partnering with David and his firms will help us communicate to families and other funeral home owners that our mission to ‘Capture, Acknowledge and Share Life’s Purpose’ is a welcome addition to the state of Wisconsin.”
