Bucks County Company Celebrates 40 Years of Business
Malmark Bellcraftsmen, the largest handbell manufacturer in the world, is a second generation family owned and operated business. We are a proud U.S. manufacturer and have been since our founding in 1973. Malmark is located in beautiful Plumsteadville, Pennsylvania, employing over 40 people at our 50,000-square-foot facility.
Although today Malmark is recognized as the world’s premier handbell company, the story of Malmark begins 40 years ago with a man and a dream. Jacob “Jake” Malta, a WWII veteran and incessant innovator, set his mind to revolutionizing the English handbell. Literally out of his living room in the small bucolic borough of Doylestown, and with the support of his loving wife Josephine, Jake laid the foundation for what would become Malmark and its flagship product: the Malmark Handbell.
