Penske Truck Leasing announced the debut of a $4.2 million Davenport, Iowa, location.
The 11,800-square-foot building is situated on nearly 8 acres, providing full-service truck leasing, consumer and commercial truck rental and contract maintenance services. Housed in the Eastern Iowa Industrial Center, the address is 2403 Research Parkway.
This facility has three service bays, a wash bay and a two-lane fuel island with bulk diesel exhaust fluid available at the pump. There will be 15 Penske associates employed at this location.
The maintenance shop uses wireless technology that enables service technicians to automatically connect vehicles for service with diagnostic and analytic software. The facility also was engineered to be capable of servicing natural gas vehicles.
"We've opened this location because Penske has simply outgrown our previous facility," said Dan O'Boyle, Penske Truck Leasing senior vice pesident for the North Central Region. "With the move, we're now more accessible to our customers arriving from I-80, I-74 and U.S. 61."
