National Trench Safety opens new branch in Washington, D.C.
Long-time construction equipment rental and trench safety veteran Pat Hewitt will be spearheading the sales growth for the location. Connie Hewitt will be the branch manager for the new operation.
“Our new Washington, D.C., area branch is a significant move for NTS, which will allow us to continue to strengthen our coverage and service footprint along the East Coast,” Ron Chilton, president of NTS, said. “The Washington, D.C., metropolitan area is one of the largest in the nation and is home to one of the most robust construction markets in the United States. The area has an extensive amount of capital improvement projects planned over the next few years, which represent significant opportunities for NTS.”
The new operation will be located in northern Virginia and will be a full service trench and traffic safety location. It will be the 25th branch location for National Trench Safety in the United States. NTS now has operations in Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and Utah. NTS plans to open at least one additional branch location in 2015.
