Our Story

WHO WE ARE

Chemic Engineers was founded in 1977 by Harvey Cappel and Jerry Hartenberger in Texas City, Texas. This fledgling two-man organization initially provided Mechanical Engineering services to the petrochemical industry. We have since grown into a full-service, integrated consulting firm, boasting two strategically located offices serving more than 100 companies in our core industrial markets.. Chemic can assist in all phases of capital and maintenance project development and execution including feasibility, Aspen TICs, Detailed Design, Procurement, and Construction Management. Chemic’s 40+ year history includes a depth of experience in the Midstream, Petrochemical, Refinery, Power, and Chemicals markets. Although Chemic is a true “Texan”, locally owned and operated company with deep roots in the Greater Houston Area, we have a history of success executing projects throughout Texas and globally.
