READING, Pa., September 12, 2007 - Today, Penske Truck Leasing celebrated the grand opening of a new facility in Scarborough, Maine, located on 77 Postal Way. The 9,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility, currently employing 15 associates, offers commercial and consumer truck rental services, full-service truck leasing and contract maintenance. About 60 leasing customers are handled at this five-acre location and nearly 300 vehicles are maintained on-site.
The one-story building features state-of-the-art technology to enhance the customer experience. A new wireless technology component allows Penske service technicians to integrate various vehicle diagnostic and repair software.

The facility has three service bays, a truck washing bay and a two-lane canopy fuel island with high-speed fuel pumps for fast, efficient service.
Penske previously operated a Scarborough location at 148 Pleasant Hill Road.
