Jon Houchens founded the organization, later to be called ESD Waste2Water, Inc., in 1993 as an environmental engineering and consulting company. He quickly learned that pollution prevention was a more desirable fit for the company so he started designing and manufacturing wash-water recycles systems. Later, Jon bought a soil and groundwater remediation company and brought it in under the ESD umbrella to add diversity to the manufacturing operation. Aside from overseeing the overall strategic direction of ESD, Jon enjoys developing new products. When not at work he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. He also doesn’t mind playing a little golf…OK, maybe a lot of golf!
