READING, Pa., November 17, 2020 –Penske Truck Leasing has built a new state-of-the-art facility in Selma, Texas. The new location will allow the transportation company to better service its existing customer base in the area and also provide capacity to serve new customers.
Officially opening for business on October 19, 2020, the new location offers consumer and commercial truck rental, full-service truck leasing and contract truck fleet maintenance. Penske’s facility is also outfitted with the company’s proprietary fully digital and voice-directed truck fleet 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.).
“This is an area that we’ve had our eye on for some time. Our new location at 17582 Lookout Road in Selma, is conveniently located near Interstate 35, a major thoroughfare in Texas,” explained Chip Jensen senior vice president for Penske’s South Central Region. “This new location also provides our current customers and new customers a convenient location for service, rentals and more in between San Antonio and Austin, a busy trucking corridor.”
The new facility is 21,014-square-feet and sits on 9.5 acres. It has five truck service bays, one automatic wash bay and a fuel island.
