Penske Truck Leasing opens new Alabama facility

Penske Truck Leasing's new facility offers truck rental, leasing, and maintenance services with digital solutions.

Penske Truck Leasing recently opened a new facility in Huntsville, Ala. Located at 25174 One Aviation Way SW, this new facility is located off Interstate 565 and provides service to both the Madison and Huntsville markets. At this location, Penske says it offers consumer and commercial truck rental, full-service truck leasing and contract truck fleet maintenance.

Penske says the facility is outfitted with the company’s proprietary fully digital and voice-directed preventive maintenance process and Penske digital experience solutions, which the company says help customers leverage Penske technology as well as options related to onboard technology systems (ELDs, telematics, onboard cameras, etc.).

At 15,750 square feet and sitting on 8.75 acres, this facility features eight service bays plus an automatic truck wash bay, and a full-service fuel island–offering diesel, diesel exhaust fluid and gasoline, according to the company.

Penske says it currently employs approximately 15 associates at the new facility, and is hiring truck technicians, management trainees and customer service representatives locally and nationwide.
