Penske opens new facility

Jason Cannon May 21, 2013

PhoenixBranch -- Hi ResPenske Truck Leasing held a grand opening event in Phoenix, Ariz. Tuesday to introduce a new state-of-the-art facility.

The $6 million facility provides full-service truck leasing, consumer and commercial truck rental and contract truck fleet maintenance services. The 24,000 square-foot structure sits on 10 acres with 55 associates employed at the location.

“We moved to this new location because we needed the space due to our growth,” said Rick Pytlik, Penske Truck Leasing Senior Vice President for the Western Region. “We’ve doubled the size of our building space and increased our acreage fivefold. We’re also now well positioned to accommodate future expansion of our operations.”

The new location features five truck service bays, an automated wash bay and a three-lane commercial truck fuel island with bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) dispensation. The maintenance shop utilizes wireless technology to enable Penske’s service technicians to automatically connect vehicles for service with diagnostic and analytic software.

The location has also been built to service trucks with engines that run on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
