Penske Truck Leasing announces Canadian expansion

Penske Truck Leasing has built a new state-of-the-art facility to support its growing customer base in Calgary, Alberta.

The new location is found at at 101 High Plains PL, Balzac, AB T4A 0W7, and will supplement Penske's three additional facilities in the area. 

Officially opened for business in October 2020, Penske says it has been gradually moving customers and staff to the new location. The new facility is now nearly fully staffed and offers commercial truck rental, full-service truck leasing and contract truck fleet maintenance.

Penske's 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.).

"Our new facility is located at a busy industrial park in a growing transportation hub. It's an ideal location for many of our customers," says Richard McLaughlin, area vice president, Canada. "We are thrilled to have more capacity to service those existing customers and also welcome some new distributors who are operating warehouses in the area."

The new facility is 16,900-sq.-ft. and sits on five acres. It has ten truck service bays and one automatic wash bay, Penske says.
