Penske Truck Leasing opens state-of-the-art facility in Cranbury

Penske Truck Leasing opened a 22,995-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Cranbury, its first-ever ground-up build in its South Plainfield District, according to a Monday announcement. The location, which has brought on 40 employees, promises to bring more jobs along with it to fill the need for truck technicians, fueler and wash bay attendants, customer service representatives and drivers.

Located at 2682 U.S. 130 N., near exits 8 and 8A of the New Jersey Turnpike and U.S. Route 1, Penske offers consumer and commercial truck rental, full-service truck leasing and contract truck fleet maintenance out of the facility. It is also outfitted with the company’s fully digital and voice-directed preventive maintenance process, which help customers leverage Penske technology as well as options related to onboard technology systems (electronic logging devices, telematics, onboard cameras, etc.).

“We’ve outgrown the South Brunswick facility by 10-fold in the past 30 years,” Mike Duquette, New York metro area vice president for Penske Truck Leasing, said. “When we first opened, the location serviced nearly 200 vehicles out of two truck bays — now, three decades later, we service over 2,000 vehicles out of three truck bays; this new state-of-the-art facility was eminent. The expansion of business occurred due to significant market growth in the region and the unparalleled service provided by Penske technicians and the district team to retain and grow the business.”

The location sits on 9.62 acres. It features five drive-thru bays with 10 service areas and is complemented by an additional 10 covered service areas hugging the facility. It also has an automated wash bay, and a full-service three-lane fuel island.
