National Trench Safety, LLC (NTS), a Houston-based company specializing in the rental and sales of trench and traffic safety equipment, trench and traffic safety engineering, and OSHA-compliant training classes, announced the opening of a new branch operation in Tucson, Arizona.
“Tucson is an important market as we look to strengthen our Arizona and Western footprint,” commented Ron Chilton, president of NTS. “Tucson is a large, growing city that has a significant amount of potential for our trench and traffic safety businesses. We’re responding to market needs and a clear request from our customers for NTS support in the greater Tucson area.”
The Tucson branch will be managed by Gene Nowlan, a seasoned trench safety veteran. “Gene took over our Phoenix branch earlier in the year and has done a tremendous job increasing the branch’s performance and profitability,” said Chilton. “Gene has a strong track record managing multiple locations, as well as leading cold starts, and we anticipate strong results from the Tucson market. Additionally, the Tucson market will allow us to further strengthen our position in Phoenix through increased fleet availability and sharing between the two markets.”
The Tucson branch is the 28th branch location for National Trench Safety in the United States. This large national foot print allows NTS to provide its national, regional and local market customers a fully integrated, national branch network delivering unique engineered solutions, the highest level of customer service and the most cost effective shoring solutions in the industry.
In maintaining its objective of building a nationwide network of trench and traffic safety branches, NTS plans to open two to three additional branch locations in 2016. For more information about NTS, visit the National Trench Safety website at www.ntsafety.com.
