National Trench Safety (NTS), a Texas, US-based company specialising in the rental and sales of trench and traffic safety equipment, said it was relocating its Tampa, Florida branch operation.

It said its Tampa branch would be upgraded to a new 3.1 acre (12545m2) facility with new office and shop front facilities.

“This is an exciting move for our Tampa team,” said Ron Chilton, president of NTS. “Over the last year, our Tampa team has made significant market share gains and we’re fortunate to be able to expand our operations in the market.

“The new location is an impressive facility and will feature a large, modern training room which will allow us to focus on increasing outreach training in the market. The new location will provide more convenient access to our facility for customers picking up and dropping off equipment, as well as operational improvements."

National Trench Safety operates 26 coast to coast branch locations across the US. The company said it planned to open additional branch locations in 2016.
