Penske Truck Leasing grows in California

April 19, 2022
Penske's second Fontana-area location covers 34,031 square feet, includes six truck bays, an automated wash bay, and full-service fuel island.

Penske Truck Leasing recently opened a new facility in Fontana, California. 

The company’s second full-service location in the Fontana area is located at 15436 Valley Blvd. The location, Penske said, will allow the company to better serve its existing customers in the area, as well as provide capacity for new customers.

At this facility, 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 Ed Mendoza, senior vice president of the company’s Western region. “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 covers 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.
