Golden Specialty was founded in 1997 to provide expert environmental testing and consulting services for clients in the greater Houston/Galveston area. As our size and reputation for value and integrity grew, the original office in Deer Park, Texas became our corporate headquarters, and we now have offices in the Pacific Northwest, Southwest, Midwest, and Northeast, and offer services throughout the US and internationally.


At Golden Specialty, our mission is simple: to provide the most accurate and helpful emissions testing products and services in the industry.
