National Trench Safety Opens New Branch Operation in Texas

September 08, 2006

HOUSTON, T.X.—National Trench Safety, LLC (NTS), a Houston-based company specializing in the rental and sales of trench and traffic safety equipment, as well as OSHA-compliant training classes, announced today that it has opened a new branch in Conroe, Texas which is about 50 miles north of Houston.

“We are very excited about our new Conroe operation,” said Ron Chilton, president of NTS. “Conroe is located in Montgomery County which is on the north side of Houston. Montgomery County is one of the fastest growing areas in the Southwest and our new branch should be well positioned to service this growing and dynamic market area. The Conroe branch is the eighth branch operation for National Trench Safety in the United States and the fifth branch location in the state of Texas. NTS currently has branch operations in California, Arizona, Texas and Louisiana.”

The new Conroe branch will be managed by Wayne Bowling, who has more than 20 years direct experience in the trench and traffic safety industry. “We are fortunate to have Wayne heading up our new Conroe operation,” said Chilton. “Wayne has been the Assistant Branch Manager for our large Houston operation for some time and has a long and successful track record with NTS.”

In maintaining the objective of building a nationwide network of trench and traffic safety branches, NTS plans to open at least one additional new branch operation in the fourth quarter of 2006 with additional branches to follow in 2007. For strategic reasons, Chilton declined to comment on the location of the additional new branches. For more information about NTS, visit the National Trench Safety website at
