4-Horn Trench & Shoring, a Texas-based provider of trench boxes, road plates, and engineering services for underground construction equipment in municipal and industrial sectors, is expanding to the Midwest with the opening of a new facility in Inver Grove Heights, Minn.

Located at 10967 Clark Rd. in Inver Grove Heights, the branch spans more than six acres and is 30 minutes southeast of downtown Minneapolis.

The Minnesota location is the sixth addition to 4-Horn Trench & Shoring’s network, joining other branches in its Texas customer hubs in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Fort Worth. Operations at the new branch in Minnesota will be led by regional manager and Minnesota native Josh Ritter, and branch manager Jordan Ruba.

“We are ready to grow,” said Rhett Lasserre, 4-Horn Trench & Shoring CEO. “As leaders and competitors in the Dallas and greater Houston industrial community, our expansion to Minnesota is a strategic decision. We are not just expanding geographically; we are positioning ourselves to better serve the Midwest and establish lasting relationships with our customers. I am also particularly excited about having Josh Ritter, a native of The North Star State, lead our operations as regional manager. With Josh at the helm, we look forward to seamlessly integrating into the Minnesota market and providing exceptional service to our clients.”

4-Horn Trench & Shoring said it is committed to meeting the diverse needs of customers throughout the Midwest region by ensuring ready availability for equipment rentals, sales, and service for projects ranging from general construction to underground municipal, pipeline and industrial requirements.

“As someone with deep roots in Minnesota, I am particularly excited about bringing 4-Horn Trench & Shoring to my home state,” Ritter said. “I am eager to contribute to the growth of 4-Horn Trench & Shoring and ensure that our services align seamlessly with the safety standards that define us.”

The new location aligns with 4-Horn Trench & Shoring’s strategic growth plan to broaden its geographic reach and provide enhanced support to customers throughout North America, the company said.
