National Trench Safety, specialist in the rental and sales of trench- and traffic-safety equipment, trench- and traffic-safety engineering, and OSHA-compliant classes, has opened a new branch in Denver.
“Denver is a large metropolitan area with a strong construction market that we believe aligns well with our trench and traffic safety business,” said Ron Chilton, president of NTS. “Over the last year, we’ve received a significant amount of interest from our customers requesting NTS support on several large, complex projects in the greater Denver market. Adding this Denver location will allow us to better serve these customers as well as grow the NTS brand throughout Colorado.”
The Denver branch will be managed by Richard Hearn, a long-time trench safety rental specialist, and an NTS management veteran. Hearn most recently managed NTS’ Tampa, Fla., branch.
“We are excited that Richard has accepted the new position and has relocated to Denver to manage this new startup operation,” Chilton said. “Richard has experience opening cold-start locations and is very knowledgeable about our equipment. Richard has already begun building a strong team in the market and we look forward to him establishing NTS as the premier Trench and traffic safety supplier in the market.”
NTS now has 26 locations in the United States, and expects to open more in 2016.
