National Trench Safety, LLC, theHouston-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 this week the opening of a new branch operation in Fort Worth, Texas.

“We’re excited to be strengthening our presence in the Dallas and Fort Worth markets,” said Ron Chilton, President of NTS. “We have been the dominant trench and traffic safety supplier in the Dallas metroplex for a number of years. With the continued growth in the Ft. Worth trade area, it has become increasingly important that we add an additional location in that area to be able to maintain the superior service levels that our customers have come to expect. This new location in the Western portion of the metroplex, will expand our branch footprint while also allowing us to continue to grow our overall position in the market.”

The new NTS Fort Worth branch will be managed by Randy Towns, a seasoned trench safety veteran who is well known in the greater Dallas and Fort Worth market. “Randy has a significant amount of experience in the trench safety industry and has established a strong rapport with the local customer base,” said Chilton.

The Fort Worth operation is the 32nd branch location for National Trench Safety in the United States and England. This large national footprint allows NTS to provide its national, regional and local market customers a fully integrated, national branch network delivering unique engineered solutions, the highest level of customer service and the most cost effective shoring solutions in the industry.

In maintaining its objective of building a nationwide network of trench and traffic safety branches, NTS plans to open several additional branch locations over the next 12 months.
