There are a number of major employers for CNC machinists in the Houston metropolitan area. The oil and gas industry is one of the most prominent employers, with many businesses within this sector needing highly skilled machinists to maintain and operate their machines and equipment. Aerospace companies also make up a large portion of local employers, as Houston has been dubbed the “Space City” due to its close ties with NASA. Additionally, automotive and firearms manufacturers are primary sources of employment for CNC machinists in the region.

Major employers in the area include Chevron, Halliburton, and Schlumberger. Other notable companies include Baker Hughes, National Oilwell Varco, Ellwood Group and Gorbel.

Despite the thriving nature of Houston's CNC machining industry, there are still some challenges that the city faces. One such obstacle is a shortage of skilled workers due to low wages and limited job opportunities in the field. Additionally, rising competition from other U.S. cities means that many Houston businesses have to look outside of the city for talent.

To ensure that Houston's CNC machining industry remains competitive and relevant in the future, it is important for businesses to continue investing in training and development for their workers, as well as provide incentives to attract new talent. Doing so will help ensure that the CNC machining industry in Houston continues to be an important contributor to the U.S. economy.
