Jason Cannon June 13, 2013

PENSKE TRUCK LEASING DAVENPORT IOWAPenske Truck Leasing announced Thursday the opening of a new, $4.2 million location in Davenport, Iowa.

The 11,800 square-foot building sits on nearly eight acres, providing full-service truck leasing, consumer and commercial truck rental and contract maintenance services.

“We’ve opened this location because Penske has simply outgrown our previous facility,” Dan O’Boyle, Penske Truck Leasing Senior Vice President for the North Central Region, says. “With the move, we’re now more accessible to our customers arriving from I-80, I-74 and U.S. 61.”

The facility has three service bays, a wash bay and a two-lane fuel island with bulk diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) available at the pump. There will be 15 Penske associates employed at this location. The maintenance shop utilizes wireless technology that enables Penske’s service technicians to automatically connect vehicles for service with diagnostic and analytic software. The facility was engineered to be capable of servicing natural gas vehicles.
