Pasadena, Texas

Nestled between Houston and Galveston Bay, Pasadena is the 2nd-largest city in Harris County and the 17th-largest in Texas. Pasadena was founded in 1893 and is home to over 150,000 people; it is regarded as a family-oriented, thriving and growing city with a strong industrial base. Shaped by its history, the city offers several museums, including the Pasadena Historical Museum, a community theater, an annual rodeo, and the Pasadena Philharmonic.

The Texas Oil Boom began in the early 1900s. By 1920, refinery operations had appeared in Pasadena and continued to expand. Both world wars contributed to the city’s industrial development. By the mid-1900s, Pasadena's economy had become strongly tied to petroleum and other heavy industry, as well as NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC). Today, Pasadena’s primary economic sectors include exploration for petroleum and gas, petroleum refining, petrochemical processing, maritime shipping, aerospace, and healthcare. The nearby Bayport Industrial District, one of the nation's largest chemical processing complexes, is vital to Pasadena’s employment. Also, the Houston Ship Channel and the Bayport shipping terminal, as well as high-tech businesses in the area related to the JSC have developed as well, adding to the city's economic base. The Pasadena Refining System, a partnership of Petrobras and Astra Holding USA, is headquartered in Pasadena.
