Penske Truck Leasing will soon be placing the finishing touches on a state-of-the-art facility for commercial truck leasing, commercial and consumer truck rental, and contract maintenance in Garner, N.C. Garner is located near the state capital of Raleigh.
In August of this year, Penske hosted a groundbreaking ceremony in conjunction with the town of Garner that was attended by the mayor, economic development officials and major customers. Located in the Greenfield South Business Park, it is 12,000 square feet on 8.5 acres. It has three truck service bays, a wash bay and a two-lane fuel island.
“The site work is progressing,” explained Chuck Looper, the vice president of facilities for Penske. “Stone base for the pavement is being placed and landscaping will begin soon. In the building, the service bay floors are in, the heating and ventilations systems are being put in. Drywall and finishes are going on in the office area. At the fuel island, the canopy is going up and the piping and the electrical work is making progress.”
The facility is expected to be operational in early 2011.
