Thacker Caskets Acquires Edison Casket Company

From a press release.

Thacker Caskets is excited to announce that it has recently completed an acquisition of Edison Casket Company in Edison, New Jersey. This marks Thacker Casket’s fifth acquisition in its pursuit of remaining the largest family-owned-and-operated casket company.

“The Kulesza family has held an admirable reputation of dedication and customer care within the industry. We’re honored to have been considered to carry on their history,” said CJ Thacker, President of Thacker Caskets.

The Kulesza family, fourth-generation owners of Edison Casket Co., has been proudly serving funeral homes in the New Jersey and New York marketplace for over 60 years. Edison’s decision to sell its longstanding company was due to the next generation of family succession electing to pursue careers outside the funeral industry. “It was imperative we see that our legacy be carried on through a privately-owned family business, such as Thacker,” said Lee Kulesza, President of Edison Casket Co.

Sharing the same values, philosophies, and customer care insights, the Kulesza family believes that Thacker Caskets is best aligned to provide funeral homes with multiple solutions for today’s industry challenges. “From iArrange, which allows funeral homes to customize digital showrooms, and our Remembrance Line merchandising program, which features a comprehensive line of cremation products, to providing consultative and custom marketing programs, we are constantly striving to provide funeral homes with the most innovative services in the market,” CJ Thacker added.

Since 1939, Thacker has been committed to providing funeral homes with high-quality products at impeccable value, and remains dedicated to ensuring the same service of excellence that Edison’s customers expect today. For more information, visit or call 800.637.8891.
