Jim Milano, of Milano Monuments, and Trevor Behm, of Behm Monument & Granite Company, announced that Behm has joined Milano's family of companies. Behm's two locations, in Geneva and Madison, have become Milano affiliates.
"We're very excited to join forces with Behm Monument & Granite Company," says Milano. "They have a long history and a wonderful reputation in the markets which they serve." Both locations will continue to operate under the Behm Monument & Granite Company brand as wholly owned subsidiaries of Milano Monuments.
"Milano has incredible resources that we can now offer the customers in our market. They have an extraordinary design capability, in-house sculpting, etching and engraving and the region's largest inventory of granite stones," adds Behm. "They also offer the Rock of Agesâ¢ line, which significantly expands our offering. Their reputation for quality work and family-centric service is a perfect fit for us," Behm continues.
Behm will continue to independently operate their funeral homes in both markets. "Our funeral homes are not part of the agreement between Behm and Milano," explains Behm.
"We have been actively seeking opportunities to expand into other markets in the region," explains Milano. "Adding Behm in Geneva and Madison gives us greater reach into Northeast Ohio and also a relationship with a family and a company that shares our philosophy of compassionate, caring service for families."
Milano also has a longtime partnership with Brunner Sanden Deitrick Funeral Home & Cremation Center in Mentor and earlier this year added Youngstown Memorials and Trumbull Monument Company to the Milano family of companies.
