Penske Truck Leasing recently celebrated the relocation of its Dubuque, Iowa, facility. To accommodate a growing customer-base, Penske built a new state-of-the-art facility that offers full-service truck leasing, consumer and commercial truck rental, contract truck fleet maintenance 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.).
Expanding its capacity, Penske’s new 9,600-square-foot building sits on 4 acres and has two service bays and one automatic wash bay. The facility is equipped with high-tech rapid lifting and lowering mobile column truck lifts, providing a safe environment for technicians to service vehicles.
Penske associates (from left to right) Sam Aiello, area sales manager; Chris Belzer, lease sales representative; David Kopta, area vice president; Craig Carroll, district manager; Jack Heiderscheit, lead technician; Drew Sandoval, rental sales representative and Bryon Weinheimer, area maintenance manager participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the company’s new facility in Dubuque, Iowa.
“We outgrew our previous facility and required more space for our contract maintenance, leasing and rental customers,” explained Chip Jensen, senior vice president for Penske’s South Central Region. “Our new facility is conveniently located near Highway 20, a major thoroughfare for our customers operating trucks in the region.”
Penske Dubuque officially opened for business March 1, and will be hiring for the facility as business continues to grow in the area. For a list of open positions visit gopenske.com/careers.
