About Company

National Trench Safety (NTS) was founded in January 2004 by a group of trench safety rental industry veterans with financing from Main Street to concentrate on the rental and sale of trench safety products and underground equipment, including trench shielding, trench shoring, road plates, pipe lasers, pipe plugs and confined space equipment. On May 14, 2004, NTS completed the acquisition of C.C.S.S. Services, Inc., dba Mikedon (Mikedon), which represented NTS’ first operations. With financing and strategic support from Main Street, NTS expanded significantly after its acquisition of Mikedon with an aggressive organic brand expansion plan and select acquisitions. NTS now maintains over 20 locations across the United States and is continuing its national expansion.
