Penske Truck Leasing has constructed a new state-of-the-art facility in Fort Worth, Texas. Located at 1300 John Burgess Drive, it is the third full-service company location in the Fort Worth area. Penske now has a total of 16 locations throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

This structure offers consumer and commercial truck rental, full-service truck leasing and contract truck fleet maintenance. It is also outfitted with the company's proprietary fully digital and voice-directed preventive maintenance process and connected fleet solutions, a value-added resource to help customers address issues and options related to onboard technology systems (ELDs, telematics, onboard cameras, etc.).

"We invested in this third local location to support our growing customer base in the southern part of the Fort Worth market," explained Chris Anderholm, senior vice president for Penske Truck Leasing's south central region. "We are very pleased to be a part of the business park expansion which allows Penske to better serve large customers in the delivery and food and beverage sectors, and to help them meet their customer's needs."

The location is 23,470-square-feet and sits on 12.5 acres. It has five truck service bays, an automated wash bay and a full-service fuel island.
