Energizing the World
Pasadena, Texas is located less than 15 minutes from downtown Houston – near the action but distant enough to have our own community identity. Our borders extend from the Houston Ship Channel all the way to Galveston Bay and Clear Lake, creating multiple communities within Pasadena itself.
The products we use every day start right here in Pasadena – whether they’re made here or passing through Port Houston, one of the top container ports in the nation, located in our backyard. We’re home to the country’s largest petrochemical complex and have access to anywhere in the world – and beyond – with Hobby Airport just 15 minutes away, George Bush Intercontinental Airport just 40 minutes away, and NASA’s Johnson Space Center and Ellington Field nearby.
Our industrial roots have transformed our city into a place with growing energy. We have seen more than $2.5 billion in capital investment in the last three years and boast a wide range of companies, from global energy giants like BP and Total to household names like Boeing and Nestle Water. We also have more than 5,700 small businesses, which cite our welcoming, business-friendly environment and massive industry base as just some of the reasons they’ve found success in Pasadena. Our industrial prowess means we offer well-paying jobs and exciting career opportunities in fields including energy, transportation, and logistics, aerospace, technology, health care, retail, and more. So whether you want to take advantage of our next-generation petrochemical industry, or reap the ripple effect it’s having on our economy, there are plenty of ways to grow your business and your career in Pasadena.
