Penske Truck Leasing has opened a new facility in Statesville, North Carolina, in order to better serve its growing customer base in the region.
“We serve a pretty diverse customer base in the region from food distributors to furniture haulers and we are excited to now offer them a new state-of-the-art facility and easy access to major thoroughfares like Interstate 40,” explained Joe Hill, senior vice president for Penske’s Southeast Region.
Penske’s new location in Statesville is outfitted with the company’s proprietary fully digital and voice-directed truck fleet 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.).
The 18,500-square-foot facility that sits on 6 acres has twelve truck bays and is equipped with high-tech rapid lifting and lowering mobile column truck lifts, providing a safe environment for technicians to service vehicles.
Penske will hire at the facility as business continues to grow in the area. For a list of all open positions visit gopenske.com/careers.
