The Hillenbrand name represents a century-old tradition of quality and service. Purchased by John A. Hillenbrand in 1906, Batesville Casket was the foundation of what ultimately became Hillenbrand Industries, a successful and widely respected public company. In April 2008, Hillenbrand Industries split the funeral products and medical technology businesses into two separate publicly traded companies. Listed on the New York Stock Exchange as HI, the new Hillenbrand, Inc. is the holding company for Batesville Casket. This award-winning organization has a culture of execution and is recognized in the manufacturing industry as a leader in lean business practices and continuous improvement.
Hillenbrand has a strong balance sheet, steady profitable growth and a recession-resistant business model through our Batesville Casket operating division, which is the world’s largest manufacturer of funeral services products, including burial caskets; cremation containers and urns; selection room display fixturing; memorialization products; and a wide range of Web-based technology solutions. Our strong foundation of core competencies and effective execution will lead the way for enterprise growth. We are searching for acquisition opportunities with companies that can benefit from our lean business practices and continuous improvement to take their manufacturing and distribution operations to the next level of profitability and shareholder value.
