WE ACQUIRE SMALL BUSINESSES

We buy and grow New Jersey-based companies with the intent of never selling. We work with business owners to transition their legacies to a permanent home. After a business joins the Mt. Sophia family, we invest in its people and operations so we can grow together for the next generation and beyond.
