National Trench Safety LLC, a Houston-based company specializing in the rental and sales of trench and traffic safety equipment, as well as OSHA-compliant training classes, today announced the opening of a new branch operation in Charleston, S.C.
“We are very excited about our new Charleston operation,” said Ron Chilton, NTS president. “Charleston represents our first branch operation on the East Coast. The greater Charleston metropolitan area represents a key strategic market for NTS as we continue to serve our existing customer base, while reaching out to new customers on the East Coast.”
The Charleston branch will be managed by Brian McDonald, a trench safety equipment veteran with 16-plus years of experience within the industry. “We are very fortunate to have someone of Brian’s caliber managing our Charleston facility,” Chilton said. “Brian has a great understanding of the trench safety products, the North and South Carolina markets and will be a big asset to our customers.”
The Charleston branch is the 13th branch operation for National Trench Safety in the United States. NTS now has operations in Arizona, California, Louisiana, Nevada, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.
NTS plans to open at least two additional new branch operations in 2012 with more branches planned to follow in 2013. For more information about NTS, visit www.ntsafety.com.
