NTS has completed its third relocation within the last 30 days with the relocation of its Seattle operation to a larger facility located at 11022 East Marginal Way South in Tukwila, Washington. The new location moves the operation much closer to the Seattle metro area while also improving the company’s facilities and outside storage. “We needed to upgrade our Seattle presence, both in overall operational capacity as well as location,” explained Ron Chilton, President of NTS. “We’ve been focused on upgrading the Seattle area facility, however, the Seattle real estate market has proven to be a very tight market over the last couple years. We are extremely excited with this new location and what it will mean for our Seattle team.”
Erik Smith, the Company’s Seattle Branch Manager, has overseen the company’s startup location, as well as its transition to the new location. “Erik and the Seattle team have done a good job establishing our presence in the market, but clearly needed a location that would improve the branch’s visibility as well as ability to service our customers,” continued Chilton. “With this new location, our continued investment to bringing in one of the market’s youngest, most diverse and robust rental fleets and a focus upon continuing to add industry veterans to the team, the Seattle market is well positioned heading into the fourth quarter.”
The new facility features a modern rental office that will allow the Seattle team to serve its markets, as well as a dedicated building for the Company’s full-time industry veteran training instructors to conduct OSHA compliant training course and a large shop building. “This is a nice facility,” Chilton elaborated. “The Seattle team is really excited about the new property and what these facilities will mean for the branch and the ability to continue to service our customer needs. As people familiar with the Seattle market know, rain can create operational challenges. The new shop will allow the Seattle team to be able to provide strong service and not be constrained by weather challenges.”
As mentioned, this relocation marks the company’s third relocation within the last 30 days with at least one additional relocation planned before the end of the third quarter of 2020. NTS remains committed to strengthening its market position so that it can continually improve upon the superior customer service and product experience that have become synonymous with NTS.
