Over the last 14 months, Premier Truck Rental (PTR) has had multiple momentous milestones as an organization, 2 of which were the expansion of its headquarters in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and the opening of its second facility in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Grand Opening ceremony for PTR’s Fort Worth location was a 2-day celebration that took place on November 8 and 9. This event was marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony with local Fort Worth officials, facility tours, a vendor expo with equipment demos, and more.
The Fort Worth Grand Opening was proudly supported by some of PTR’s key vendor partners: Knapheide, RC Industries, Fill-Rite, and Bedrock Truck Beds.
PTR’s new Texas includes 18 EV stations, 4 overhead cranes, a wash bay, and a body shop with a paint booth large enough for a Class VIII truck. This facility is expected to bring over 100 new-to-market jobs in the area, having both automotive technician and administrative roles available.
The expansion of its headquarters in Fort Wayne, Indiana, began with a groundbreaking ceremony in October of 2022. With expected occupancy of December of 2023, the complete expansion plans include 18,000 square feet of new warehouse space, 6,000 square feet of new office space, additional infrastructure to support the company’s growing fleet of vehicles, some of which are electric, and more.
“Despite having a front-row seat to the PTR growth story the past decade, I’m still amazed we’re on our 3rd Indiana expansion in a 5-year timeframe,” said Adriene Horn, President of PTR. “We’re grateful for the success we’ve been fortunate enough to have and forever thankful to the team members, partners, and customers that have made it all possible. The expansion in Fort Wayne and opening our facility in Fort Worth this year were milestones for PTR and positioned us for the growth that’s yet to come!”
