Reading, Pa., Apr. 12, 2022 – Penske Truck Leasing has constructed a new state-of-the-art facility in Fontana, California. Located at 15436 Valley Boulevard, it is the second full-service company location in the Fontana area. The new location will allow the transportation company to better serve its existing customer base in the area, as well as provide capacity to serve new customers.
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 connected fleet solutions, a value-added resource to help customers address issues and options related to onboard technology systems (ELDs, telematics, onboard cameras, etc.).
"Opening our second Fontana facility will allow us to support a growing customer base and expand the district's footprint to attract future business," said Senior Vice President of the Western Region, Ed Mendoza. "This new state-of-the-art facility is outfitted with innovative technology to keep pace with the growth and current demand of the transportation industry."
The location is 34,031-square-feet and sits on 5.5 acres. It has six truck service bays, an automated wash bay, a full-service fuel island and two electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. The Level 2 EV chargers installed on-site have the ability to charge vehicles such as the Ford E-Transit van and similar light-duty vans and trucks.
Penske currently employs 25 associates at the new facility, and is hiring diesel technicians, customer service representatives, and drivers locally and nationwide.
