Coble Trench Safety Inc. (CTS), a Greensboro, N.C.-based company specializing in the rental and sales of trench safety equipment, as well as OSHA-compliant training classes, and the rental and sales of traffic safety equipment announced it, has opened a new branch in Norfolk, Va., which will service the Tidewater and surrounding area in Virginia.

“We are very excited about our new Norfolk operation,” said Tom Coble, president of CTS. “The Norfolk branch is our sixth expansion outside the state of North Carolina, and will be the ninth fully-staffed operation of Coble Trench Safety in the United States.”

The new branch will be managed by Jeff Becker, who has many years of direct experience in the equipment rental industry. Becker will be responsible for the Norfolk market for CTS.

“We are fortunate to have Jeff heading up our new Norfolk location,” said Coble. “His successful track record and specific industry experience will truly be an asset to Coble Trench Safety.”

In maintaining the objective of building a network of trench and traffic safety branches, CTS plans to open at least one to two other new branch operations in the coming year with additional branches to follow. For strategic reasons, Coble declined to comment on the location of the additional new branches.
