New Business Assistance

Clearing the air and clearing your way with streamlined permitting.

First, let’s clear the air: Here in Wharton, we’re proud of the work our state and the Texas Commission on Environment Quality (TCEQ) do to create cleaner air and a cleaner environment. But we also know that a clean environment doesn’t have to limit our industrial competitiveness, or slow down economic expansion. As the attainment community closest to Houston, we’re ready to transform your vision to reality quickly, and without the tangle of red tape.

That means that not only is TCEQ permitting greatly streamlined here, but also that our qualified staff is ready to guide your operation through all permitting processes—state and local—with the greatest ease. That includes specialized engineering support to insure all details are handled carefully and comprehensively, freeing your staff to focus on other business needs. Wharton is ready to move your facility from the planning stage to groundbreaking to fully operational with necessary permitting in place and without hassles, headaches or obstacles.

When it comes to permitting, Wharton is the “Where With All,” providing all the support to clear the way to a prosperous future—a permitting process that doesn’t just “permit” operation, but also supports and facilitates success.
