Athos Commemorative Services Inc. acquires Memoria
January 26, 2023
On January 26, 2023, Athos Commemorative Services Inc. acquired Memoria, a leading funeral services company in the greater Montréal area. Athos Commemorative Services is a Quebec-based business founded in 2010 to offer an alternative to the wave of acquisitions by foreign multinationals in this industry. Thanks to this network, local businesses have been able to strengthen and improve their services while being more competitive, to the great benefit of their clients. The group and its brands offer personalized services of the highest quality while respecting the beliefs and customs of the deceased and their families. This new acquisition will allow Athos Memorial Services to continue to offer a combination of tradition and openness, with expertise, empathy and a local touch.
