Penske Truck Leasing, a subsidiary of global transportation services provider Penske Corporation, said this week it has opened up a new facility in Tijuana, Mexico.

The 12,000 square-foot facility located in the Tijuana Otay Mesa Industrial area, is comprised of four service bays and a wash bay, and it serves nearly 70 vehicles and 14 lease customers.

A Penske spokesman told LM that the company has had operations in Mexico for 13 years, and Tijuana is the fourth location, with the other locations in Cuautitlan Izcalli, Huichapan and Monterrey.

“We elected to open a Tijuana location to better serve our customers in Mexico,” said the spokesman. “Previously, our Mexican customers had been serviced from our San Diego locations in the U.S., and the opening of a Tijuana location allows us to better serve Mexican customers and pursue new opportunities for full-service truck leasing and contract maintenance opportunities.”

The Tijuana facility is located at Calle 5 Sur No. 1080 and its hours of operation of Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and 8 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday.

“We are proud to open this convenient facility for our Tijuana and Baja area customers,” said Al Hernandez, Director General, Penske de Mexico, in a statement.  “It is a first-class facility.  Tijuana is one of Mexico’s largest and fastest growing markets.”
