Penske Truck Leasing Opens New Southeast Facility in Tampa, Florida
Reading, Pa., Mar. 28, 2022 – Penske Truck Leasing recently opened a new facility in Tampa, Florida. Located at 7140 East Martin Luther King Boulevard, the new location will allow the transportation services company to upgrade the service it provides to existing customers in the area, as well as the ability to add-on new customers. This is the second recent investment Penske has made in the local Tampa market.
This new facility offers both 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’ve been growing in the region and required a larger space to accommodate our increasing customer base,” said Joe Hill, senior vice president of Penske’s southeast region. “Our new, enhanced facility is conveniently located near major highways and downtown Tampa easing accessibility for both our commercial and consumer rental customers.”
The location is 28,406-square-feet and sits on 11.15 acres. It has five truck service bays, an automated wash bay system, and mobile truck lifts.
Penske currently employs 40 associates at the new facility, and is hiring truck technicians, customer service representatives, hikers, and drivers locally and nationwide. In 2020, the company opened a software development and cybersecurity support center office in Tampa. This technology center, located at 5401 W Kennedy Boulevard, employs 75 people, and plans to continue to grow in high-tech jobs over the next several years.
