Employing the Community
EHCMA member companies employ more than 30,000 people throughout East Harris County and contribute to the creation of 200,000 jobs. Rapid growth in the U.S. oil and gas industry is leading to expansion in manufacturing and refining, and increased employment opportunities for skilled positions in operations and maintenance.
Given this fast-paced industry growth, compounded by the anticipated retirement of a significant share of the workforce in the coming years, there is a critical need for trained personnel such as engineers, welders, millwrights, process technicians and others.
These highly skilled professions can become highly paid careers and our industry is regularly seeking qualified students and experienced workers for these positions.
