McGowen Chemical Company was founded by Charles Hugh McGowen, Jr. in 1960 in downtown Hattiesburg, MS. Initially McGowen Chemical was responsible for servicing oil fields and the logging industries with industrial strength chemical cleaning products. In 1979 his son, Charles Hugh McGowen, III started helping his father in the business. He took over ownership in November of 1989 after the business moved to West Hattiesburg. In 1999 Hugh moved to a larger facility in Moselle, MS where the company currently resides.

Throughout the years, high quality service and low prices has always been the primary goal of the company. In recent years the company has expanded to include sales, service, and rental of pressure washers and other industrial cleaning equipment, along with in-house production of floor sweep and industrial steam cleaners.
