By | July 11, 2016

Mark Moore 0556SANTA ANA, Calif. — Mark Moore, founder and president of the Uremet Corporation, passed away tragically on July 10 at the age of 64.

Mark, a true pioneer in the amusement industry, founded Uremet in 1982. Through his tireless commitment to polyurethane wheel development and the amusement industry, Mark will always be known for his far reaching achievements on roller coasters and amusement rides throughout the world. His unparalleled commitment to quality and service are the foundations that he instilled in the development of the Uremet Corporation, which will always be the driving force behind the company’s ongoing success.

Uremet management issued the following company statement:
“Mark’s presence will be sorely missed at Uremet as well as with all of our amusement customers. Above all else, he was a dear friend to many.

“For those of us who were lucky enough to know Mark, the one thing we all came to know and love is that he lived life to the fullest. Always on a new adventure, whether it was hiking, or flying an airplane, Mark lived with a certain zeal that most people only dream of. He was on a motorcycle trip with his brother cycling up the California coast to Alaska when he so tragically came to the end of his life’s journey.”

Mark was also active in the amusement industry by donating his time for two great causes: safety and preservation.
He served as AIMS International’s executive director for a number of years; as president 2009-2011 and on the board of directors until 2014.
He currently served on the board at the National Roller Coaster Museum & Archives, a position he has held since 2009.
