HOUSTON, T.X.—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 today that it has hired Steve Brinkley as its branch manager for the company’s Burlington, NC location. Steve will also be overseeing the Raleigh, NC branch for the next few months.

“We are very excited to have Steve joining our team,” commented Ron Chilton, president of NTS.  “Steve will have an immediate impact as we build on positive momentum in the Raleigh market and officially launch a rental operation in Burlington.  Steve has a solid background in the trench safety industry, as well as in the local North Carolina markets that will make him an immediate asset to our customer base.”

Mr. Brinkley has worked in the equipment rental industry for the last 9 years, including time as Branch Manager for Coble Trench Safety and most recently as Branch Manager for Blueline Rentals, formerly Volvo Rents in the Greensboro, NC market.  “Steve’s addition immediately strengthens our overall branch network in the Mid-Atlantic region,” explained Chilton.  “We have strong performance expectations for the Raleigh and Burlington locations as we continue to strengthen our presence along the East Coast.”
