It is with great sadness that Mountz, Inc. announces the death of its founder and chairman Donald G. Mountz.
A true entrepreneur and quintessential leader Don dedicated his life to making the world a safer place through his knowledge of torque control. Since its creation in 1965, Mountz, Inc. was founded to be an innovative provider and manufacturer of precision torque products. Used by a “who’s who” of the world’s largest manufacturing and service companies, Don’s leadership and guidance stewarded Mountz, Inc. to one of the preeminent international torque tool brands, known for durability and accuracy.
He did this without compromising his core commitment to foster an employee centric culture, continuity of the company to the next generation and masterful execution of customer experience and service. The well being of his employees was at the forefront of every decision, encouraging personal growth, career development and betterment for all.
We all remember Don as a supportive leader with a quick wit and an encouraging smile. Always willing to share life experiences he would sit and chat for hours with employees about their interests, ingratiating a culture of support and family.
The company is in mourning like never before as its employees, family and friends suffer the loss of its founder. For now, we are in a reflective state, preferring to share our gratitude and appreciation for the man who gave his all to our company and its employees. Our sympathies reside with the family, who has lost a great patriarch.
According to his wishes, the company that is owned by his son Brad and its employees will continue to strengthen through a strategic vision that Don worked on as Chairman.
