SCORE Helps 50-Year-Old Business Transition to New Ownership

Lora Mohr literally grew up in the handbell manufacturing business, Malmark, Inc., that her parents started in 1973. After having her children, she returned to working part-time at the Plumsteadville manufacturing facility in 1986.

“Before you know it, it developed into full-time,” Mohr said.

When her father, Jake Malta, died in 2010, Mohr and her sister became co-owners of the family business. As her sister contemplated retirement, Mohr began mentoring with Steve Wolfson of SCORE Bucks County to get assistance transitioning the business to sole owner.

Starting a Small Business: Fools Rush In

by Susan A. Maslow, Esquire

As a business lawyer, I am always pleased to see a new gallery, dance studio, gift shop, graphic arts or craft business bloom in previously unoccupied commercial space. I've also found myself feeling deeply disturbed, and even somewhat guilty, when I see the same "business" closing its doors. Too often, efforts to realize artistic dreams in a business turn into lingering, painful nightmares.
