Premier Truck Rental (PTR) hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate its new facility in Fort Worth.
The grand opening ceremony was a two-day event that took place on Nov. 8-9 that featured local Fort Worth officials, facility tours, a vendor expo with equipment demos and an invite-only concert.
With a focus on customer appreciation and "Uniting the Forts," this event provided a platform for national commercial construction and utility organizations to connect and learn more about PTR's custom fleet rental offerings.
The new Texas location spans 84,187 sq. ft over 14.4 acres and includes 18 EV stations, four overhead cranes, a wash bay and a body shop with a paint booth large enough for a Class VIII truck.
"We are thrilled to open our second facility in Fort Worth and expand our presence in the region," said Adriene Horn, president of PTR. "This facility will allow us to better serve our customers and we look forward to continuing to grow in this thriving market."
Throughout the event, attendees experienced an array of activities, including hands-on equipment demonstrations from key equipment vendors, in-depth facility tours highlighting our manufacturing capabilities and a country concert.
"We're pleased with the positive response to our grand opening celebration," said Rob Troxel, CEO of PTR. "This is the first time we've ever done a private event to this scale and we believe that the connections made and knowledge shared will have a lasting impact on the industry."
This event was supported by some of PTR's vendor partners: Knapheide, RC Industries, Fill-Rite, Bedrock Truck Beds, Vanair, Miller Electric, Weatherguard, STI and Fleet Complete. Their contributions enhanced the grand opening celebration while supporting the immense growth of the equipment rental industry.
This facility is expected to bring more than 100 new-to-market jobs in the area, having both automotive technician and administrative roles available.
