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 operation in Sacramento, CA.
“We are very excited about our new Sacramento operation,” said Ron Chilton, president of NTS. “Sacramento is an important strategic location for NTS and a market we have been watching for some time. As a base for our new branch, we were able to acquire certain operating assets that were previously owned by Traffic Control Services, Inc., in Sacramento. When we combine the TCS asset purchase and the additional fleet we have allocated to this market, we will invest more upfront fleet dollars in our new Sacramento branch than normal to assure we can respond to the market needs in a timely manner. The Sacramento branch is the eleventh branch operation for National Trench Safety in the United States and the second branch location in the State of California. NTS currently has branch operations in California, Arizona, Texas, Utah and Louisiana.”
The new Sacramento branch will be managed by Ed Pal, who has more than 16 years direct experience in the trench and traffic safety industry in Sacramento. “We are fortunate to have Ed heading up our new Sacramento operation,” said Chilton. “Ed has built a highly experienced sales and operational support team that are all well known in the market.”
In maintaining the objective of building a nationwide network of trench and traffic safety branches, NTS plans to open additional locations in 2012. 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 ntsafety.wpengine.com.
