PacLease expands on dealer growth

BELLEVUE, Wash. — After seeing the number of its locations double in four years, PACCAR Leasing Company (PacLease) continues its expansion with the announcement of 14 new locations throughout Canada and the U.S.

“Our location growth has been outstanding,” said Bob Southern, president of PacLease. “PACCAR dealers are looking for more ways to serve their customers and markets-and full-service leasing offers that opportunity.”

PacLease’s fleet size has doubled over the past five years and the new locations position the company well for further growth. The new additions bring the number of PacLease locations to 328.

“Based on historical data, we know that the truck leasing market typically expands at a faster rate than the rest of the industry during strong truck buying markets,” said Southern. “We’re beginning to see that happen now and expect to continue this momentum as companies consider the upcoming 2010 engine change.”

PacLease expanded its network by 14 locations
across Canada and the U.S.

According to Southern, customers can custom spec medium- and heavy-duty trucks – even hybrid units – through PacLease to match their transportation requirements.

“We spec the trucks with our customers to increase operating efficiency,” he added. “It allows our customers to reduce risk by eliminating the uncertainty of unexpected costs that could impact those in ownership. PacLease also helps to improve fleet operations through on-board technology, paperless fuel-tax reporting, insurance and fuel-purchasing programs.”

Seven of the new locations are based in the U.S. The other seven are located throughout Canada, including: Prince George, B.C., Kamloops, B.C., Saint John, N.B., Fredericton, N.B., Sussex, N.B., St. Stephen, N.B., and Lloydminster, Alta.
