National Trench Safety Relocates Burlington, NC Operation to Larger Facility

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 the relocation of its Burlington, NC operation.

The new location will be approximately 2 miles from Interstate 40/85 in Burlington and features a 12,000 square feet building on 3 acres.  “The new Burlington location will be a first class facility,” commented Ron Chilton, President of NTS.  “We’ve seen a steady increase in business since we hired Steve Brinkley as Branch Manager in April and needed to upgrade our location to service our growing customer base.”

In addition to being a full service rental and sales operation, the Burlington location will continue to be one of NTS’ strategically located manufacturing and repair centers.  “Regional manufacturing and repair facilities are a key part of our business model,” explained Chilton.  “With the role our equipment plays in protecting the lives of construction workers, it’s very important customers know that our equipment always meets or exceeds manufactures specifications.  These regional repair and manufacturing facilities are specifically designed to not only make repairs to any damaged and or worn equipment, but they also fabricate new, engineered, “site specific” equipment to meet individual customer needs.”

NTS currently has 23 branch locations throughout the United States.  The states NTS operates in include Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.

In maintaining its objective of building a nationwide network of trench and traffic safety branches, NTS plans to open several additional branch operations through the end of 2014 and into 2015.  For strategic reasons, Chilton declined to comment on the location of the additional new branches.
