National Trench Safety (NTS), a Houston, US-based company specialising in the rental and sales of trench and traffic safety equipment, trench and traffic safety engineering, and OSHA-compliant training classes, has opened a new branch operation in Washington DC.

It will be a full service trench and traffic safety location. Pat Hewitt, a construction equipment rental and trench safety veteran will be spearheading the sales growth for the location.

“We’re very fortunate to have someone of Pat’s calibre and experience to establish NTS’ presence in this market,” said NTS president Ron Chilton.

“Pat has a very strong business relationship with many of the key contractors in the market, which will be a big plus for this new branch.”

“Our new Washington DC 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,” added Mr Chilton.

“The Washington DC 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.”
