Why did your company choose Texas?
WTS Energy chose Houston, Texas as the USA headquarter in 2002. Choosing Houston was a strategic decision for WTS Energy, based on the global connection Houston provides. Not only is Houston the “Energy Capital of the World”; Texas also provides employers with a tremendous workforce. WTS Energy focuses on providing both energy operators and service companies with manpower solutions globally. The vast amount of both Operators and Service companies based in Texas provides ample opportunities to connect with these companies on a regular basis.
What kind of advice can you give to Dutch entrepreneurs who want to do business in Texas?
Texas provides companies with the opportunity to connect with many industries. When choosing a city to operate in, chose based on your primary target base. If the primary business is tech explore Austin, or Houston; if energy is the primary business explore Houston or Dallas. Each of these cities are easily accessible since each have daily flights to and from. Being the cities are easy to travel between it is not necessary to have offices in several cities. Clients in Texas enjoy face to face interaction. When setting appointments chose a local café or popular lunch spot for the meeting.
