READING, Pa. — Penske Truck Leasing has recently opened a new facility in Cranbury, New Jersey.
Located at 2682 US 130 North, near exit 8 and 8A of the New Jersey Turnpike and U.S. Route 1, it is the first-ever ground-up build in its South Plainfield District, according to a news release.
At this location, Penske 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, which help customers utilize Penske technology as well as options related to onboard technology systems (ELDs, telematics, onboard cameras, etc.).
“We’ve outgrown the South Brunswick facility by 10-fold in the past 30-years,” Mike Duquette, New York Metro area vice president for Penske Truck Leasing, said. “When we first opened, the location serviced nearly 200 vehicles out of two truck bays – now, three decades later, we service over 2,000 vehicles out of three truck bays; this new state-of-the-art facility was eminent. The expansion of business occurred due to significant market growth in the region and the unparalleled service provided by Penske technicians and the district team to retain and grow the business.”
The location is 22,995-square-feet and sits on 9.62 acres. It features five drive-thru bays with 10 service areas and is complimented by an additional 10 covered service areas hugging the facility. It also has an automated wash bay, and a full-service three lane fuel island.
Penske currently employs over 40 associates at the new facility and is hiring truck technicians, fueler and wash bay attendants, along with customer service representatives and drivers locally and nationwide.
