Edina, Minn. – Vertin has acquired the Emblom Brenny Funeral Service businesses located in Little Falls, Pierz, and Royalton, Minnesota. The closing date was June 30, and the integration teams have been working hard to enable a smooth transition.

“Emblom Brenny is an outstanding addition to Vertin. The staff there built a tremendous brand known for high quality, innovative, and caring service to families,” says Jason Burlage, Vertin CEO. “Like Vertin, Emblom Brenny believes in the importance of commitment to local communities. We look forward to supporting this distinguished firm as they help carry out our shared mission of Honoring Lives and Enriching Caregivers.”

The very beginning of what is now Emblom Brenny can be traced all the way back to a Swiss woodcarver who immigrated to America in 1853. As ownership passed through generations of families and reputable funeral service professionals, all have upheld the high standards set by those before them. Emblom Brenny now joins a network of Vertin funeral home locations spanning across a seven-state region in the upper Midwest.
