Former Conbraco Industries President and CEO Carl Mosack died Sunday, Aug. 13 at the age of 86.

Mosack started his professional career with Consolidated Brass Co., working in various positions until becoming president in 1967.

The company, now known as Conbraco Industries, grew under his leadership from $1 million in sales to more than $180 million. The Mosack family has led the privately held company for three generations. The company was acquired by Aalberts Industries in 2010. Mosack was directly responsible for the original launch of the Apollo Valve in 1968. That product transformed the company from a specialized manufacturer to a world-class market leader.

Mosack, who spent two years in the Air Force, also was committed to supporting the American workforce, keeping all manufacturing in the Carolinas as employment grew to more than 1,000 people.

He is survived by his wife Romelia Adams-Mosack, his children Kathi Mosack Dantzler (husband, Bill), Cal Mosack, Carole Mosack Lee (husband Chris), Glenn Mosack (wife Hollie) and numerous grandchildren. Glenn Mosack is the current president and CEO of the Apollo Flow Controls umbrella of brands (Lasco, Apollo, Elhkhart, Shurjoint). Cal Mosack is the senior vice president of mergers and acquisitions North Americca for parent company Aalberts Industires.

Apollo Valves was the recipient of the 2016 Supply House Times PVF Ring of Honor award.
