December 15, 2011 – 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.
