|History of Golden Bore Gun Care Products
In 1966, I founded a small gun shop in Highspire, Pennsylvania titled "Terry Mrakovich Co." The Fall of 1969 brought the need for expansion of the gun shop and
answering the demand for a line of quality firearm lubricants, which did not exist, we developed Golden Bore Guncare Products. We quickly expanded operations
and were forced to move to neighboring Middletown, PA. where we were housed in a section of the old Wincroft Stove Works building. 1973 brought the demand
for a new business name, "MULTISPORTS International, Inc." due to selling items other than gun care. With this new name, brought the expansion our oils and
cleaners including the introduction of 6 oz spray cans and larger size bottles.
The Three Mile Island Nuclear accident occured just a few miles from our office in March 1979. We chose to investigate moving our operations out of the area for
safety reasons and finally chose Coral Springs, Florida, with the final move at the beginning of 1980.
The mid-90's brought yet another business name change to Termark International, Inc. This new name brought about organizational changes, switching from a
Florida to Wyoming corporation and moving with the corporate office to Cheyenne, Wyoming.
In 2004, We returned corporate control to Florida and formed the Susquehanna Group, L.L.C. (a Florida L.L.C.) acquired the Golden Bore Guncare Products line
from the former Termark International, Inc. Susquehanna's acquisition necessitated some non-productive products to be discontinued due to low sales or
changes in laws governing chemical compositions used, etc.. The new management chose to allow some operations to remain in Cheyenne, WY. with Sales and
management returning to Coral Springs, Florida where it remains today.
Today, we continued to improve and update the Golden Bore line, as well as add products from other domestic vendors which are currently in demand.
Our client base comprises of gun dealers, pawn shops, gunsmiths and Federal, State and local governments.
