Coble Trench Safety, a Greensboro, N.C.-based company specializing in the rental and sales of trench safety and traffic safety equipment, was named No. 11 on the listing of Triad Fast 50 companies, the fastest-growing companies in the north-central North Carolina Piedmont region of Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point.
The Piedmont Triad region has been ranked as the 30th-largest metropolitan area in the United States.
Coble Trench Safety was ranked No. 43 in 2008, No. 37 in 2009 and No. 16 in 2010. The annual ranking is sponsored by the Business Journal.
“Any time you receive external acknowledgement for the job you’re doing it helps to reinforce the value you bring to the marketplace,” said Tom Coble, CTS president. “There are some truly great companies in the Triad and for us to be recognized among the top 50 is an honor. The recognition is a testament to the team of employees working at all 11 CTS branch locations. Our customers know that if they have a water main break afterhours or during the week and the repair work requires shoring that we’re just a phone call away from getting the equipment out to the job that day.”
CTS added its 11th branch location in Knoxville, Tenn., this year and has plans to add two to three additional locations in 2012. The company also has branches in Atlanta; Baltimore; Charleston and Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh, N.C.; Norfolk and Richmond, Va., and Washington, D.C.
