Penske Truck Leasing is opening a new state-of-the-art facility in DeForest.

Sitting on 8.35 acres, the 20,040-square-foot facility is equipped with four drive-through service bays, an automated wash bay, a three-lane fuel island, two tire carousels, overhead service bay cranes, a building canopy and high-tech rapid lifting and lowering mobile column truck lifts.

The 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.).

Penske in DeForest will offer customers consumer and commercial truck rental in addition to full-service truck leasing and contract truck fleet maintenance.

“Our previous facility in the region served us well for a number of years, but recent growth and a desire to continuously improve our customers’ experience led us to creating this brand new and truly state-of-the-art facility,” explained Mike Pritchard, senior vice president for Penske’s North Central Region. “The building is conveniently located off U.S. Route 51 and Interstate 39, offering customers easy access to major transportation corridors.”
