Students at Universal Technical Institute’s (UTI) Avondale, Arizona, campus have a welcomed addition to the Diesel Tech program: a state-of-the-art Penske sleeper.
Penske Truck Leasing recently had the opportunity to leave its mark on a newly opened technical school – literally.
Fresh from his tour in the Marine Corps, Cristian Raymundo wanted more than just a job when he settled back into civilian life.
“Hearing from professional, successful women in the industry brought a new level of education to our students, one that can’t be taught in the classroom,” explained Jacqui Arcidiacono, employment services director for UTI-Exton.
Gregg Mangione, Penske Truck Leasing senior vice president of maintenance, stated that company truck technicians can learn many new things in "our system."

A dedication ceremony took place earlier today at Universal Technical Institute (UTI) Philadelphia in Exton, Pa., to commemorate a 1,900-square-foot multipurpose room that was funded by Penske Truck Leasing.

“One of our largest employment needs is skilled truck maintenance technicians and maintenance managers,” stated Bill Jacobelli, Penske’s senior vice president of maintenance. “We value our relationship with UTI to hire graduates to maintain our 6,600-person North American truck maintenance workforce and field maintenance management.”
