Cooper Equipment Rental’s Trench Safety division has been rapidly growing since its launch in 2017 and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down! We sat down with Cameron Dougherty, General Manager at Cooper Trench Safety, to learn more about what’s new for 2022.
In 2021, the Cooper Trench Safety division expanded into western Canada, increased fleet offerings, added a new engineering shoring manager role, and moved into a new larger facility in Ottawa. These developments, in particular the opening of a Trench Safety branch in Edmonton, allow the team to better serve national customers while nurturing business relationships in the western Canada market.
“In January 2021, Cooper Trench Safety expanded into the Edmonton market with the opening of a new branch.” says Dougherty. “With entering a new market came the investment in additional product lines. We now have GroundWorks Lite Shield and Air Shores in our fleet available for rent in Edmonton.”
The growth of the Trench Safety division by expanding into the Western market has also helped strengthen its service offerings alongside Cooper Equipment Rentals. It enables both divisions to provide a full turnkey solution to their customers, as they can source general rental equipment and trench safety equipment from one company, acting as a one-stop-shop for their project needs.
