Penske Truck Leasing announced it has recently opened a new facility in Tampa, Florida, which 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.
The facility is also outfitted with the company's proprietary fully digital and voice-directed preventive maintenance process and connected fleet solutions.
“We’ve been growing in the region and required a larger space to accommodate our increasing customer base,” said Joe Hill, SVP 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.
