Our founder, Harry G. Davis, was born and raised in Saginaw, Michigan and began his adult life in 1941 as an Army Air Corp pilot in WWII. Returning from the war, he moved to Harlingen, Texas with Gulf Oil. A few years later, he and his wife, June, founded Valley Solvent Company, Inc. in 1952. Harry forged our company’s path with one truck and one ideal: service with integrity.
That ideal worked for Harry, and it works for us today. Valley is still owned and operated by the second and third family generations. Maintaining this legacy, we now operate from four facilities serving Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Mexico.
Harry Davis passed away in 1972, but he would be proud of our progress. Mostly, he would be proud of the many dedicated employees who have carried on his mission of building Valley into one of the most respected and successful service-oriented chemical companies in Texas.
Today, Valley is still run by family members. Bill Davis, Harry’s son, currently serves as President and CEO, and Harry’s grandson, Danny Bates, is Executive Vice President.
We aspire to be the most respected chemical distributor by our customers, suppliers, employees, the community, and regulators by providing quality products, exceptional service, and creative solutions with integrity.
Distributing chemicals and providing waste services, responsibly, safely, securely, efficiently, and on time.
At Valley, we believe this company is God’s company and we are grateful to be His stewards. Our ministry vision is to intentionally love, serve and minister to our team members, business partners, and community, so lives are positively impacted, and people come to know Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him as their Lord and Savior.
