Penske Truck Leasing announced it has recently opened a facility in Akron, Ohio.
The new facility is Penske’s first-ever, full-service rental and leasing facility that is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified, according to the company's news release.
“Our sustainability efforts are an integral part of our day-to-day operations,” said Luke DeCesare, area vice president of the Great Lakes area for Penske Truck Leasing. “Opening our first full-service truck leasing facility with LEED certification is an example of our organization's commitment to being good neighbors and stewards of the environment."
At this location, Penske said it 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 Penske digital experience solutions.
At 23,816 square feet and sitting on 9.85 acres, the new facility also supports Penske’s strategic growth throughout the region. It features four pull-through service bays plus an automatic truck wash bay, and a full-service fuel (offering diesel, diesel exhaust fluid, and gasoline).
Penske added that it currently employs approximately 60 associates at the new facility.
