Did You Know?
In 2019 The Woodlands-based Apergy Corp. and the Sugar Land-based upstream energy business of Nalco, an Ecolab Company merged to create ChampionX. They provide upstream and midstream oil field technology solutions, chemistry programs and services, drilling technology, artificial lift solutions, and automation technologies for the oil and gas industry.

The Houston region is the headquarters for virtually every segment of the energy industry and Sugar Land is home to many well known energy companies such as Schlumberger, Championx and Fluor.  Located 20 minutes from downtown Houston and 25 minutes from Houston’s energy corridor and with easy access to major transportation outlets, Sugar Land is a prime destination for both locally and globally headquartered energy and petroleum companies.

Success in Sugar Land is found through its strong workforce, many graduates from prestigious Texas universities, a highly-trained technical workforce, and diverse labor pool which provides businesses with an exceptionally effective cost of skilled and unskilled labor. Companies and their employees are drawn to Sugar Land due to the high quality of the area’s secondary and higher educational systems, exceptional quality of life and reasonable housing costs for individuals and families.
