MOGAS Grieves the Passing of Its Esteemed Founder and Chairman of the Board, Vincent Louis Mogas Houston, Texas – May 2, 2024: MOGAS Industries is deeply saddened to announce the passing of its cherished founder and Chairman of the Board, Vincent Louis Mogas, who departed on May 2, 2024, in Houston, Texas. Louis dedicated his life to nurturing a valve manufacturing enterprise and fostering a corporate ethos steeped in integrity.

The inception of MOGAS Industries dates back to 1973, when Louis Mogas acquired a modest machine shop in Houston. Shortly thereafter, he secured the rights to manufacture and service ball valves from Cameron Iron Works. Louis’ visionary leadership propelled MOGAS towards innovative frontiers, establishing an esteemed Research and Development department to engineer bespoke valve solutions for diverse industrial applications. Since the turn of the millennium, the company has expanded its footprint globally, establishing sales offices and service hubs across continents, including Australia, China, Europe, Canada, South America, the Middle East, and India.

From its nascent stages, Louis Mogas instilled a set of business principles that underpin MOGAS’ core values – fostering a culture where every individual is empowered, infusing work with excitement, and prioritizing ethical conduct. His conviction that work should be both fulfilling and noble, and that unity defines the MOGAS family, remains the cornerstone of the company’s corporate ethos.

Louis garnered numerous accolades throughout his tenure, including recognition from The Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Private Companies, multiple Best Companies to Work For in Texas awards, accolades for supplier excellence, and distinctions such as Texas Family Large Business of the Year Finalist and Best Quality Product. Yet, his proudest achievements were philanthropic endeavors, including support for Ronald McDonald House Houston, The Periwinkle Foundation, Camp for All, the National Multiple Sclerosis Association, and various schools in the Houston district. In 2017, Texas A&M University, Kingsville, honored Louis as a distinguished graduate for his establishment of the Mogas Family Perseverance Scholarship Endowment. Furthermore, MOGAS Industries extends educational opportunities through scholarships and mentoring programs for employees and their families.

The loss of Louis Mogas reverberates deeply within the MOGAS family and across its global community. His exemplary leadership and unwavering commitment to service leave an indelible legacy, inspiring all who had the privilege of knowing him. As we mourn his passing, we pledge to honor his memory by perpetuating his values through our endeavors and actions.

“Always incorporate your values into your work so that when you come home at the end of the day, you can be proud of yourself.” – Louis Mogas
