BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 13, 2020 - PacLease continued its vehicle growth trend by increasing its new full-service rental and leasing business by 18 percent in 2019. According to Ken Roemer, PACCAR Leasing's President, the company also added seven new locations to further the PacLease footprint.

"We're entering our 40th year of business as the full-service leasing arm of PACCAR - offering Kenworth and Peterbilt medium and heavy duty models," said Roemer. "We're at an all-time high in the number of vehicles in our PacLease fleet, and we now have more than 450 service locations throughout the United States and Canada. Over the years, our customers have come to rely on custom spec'd PACCAR products, backed by a service network that we feel is second to none. Both have correlated directly to our sustained growth."

Over the past three years, PacLease has added 24 new locations, with seven coming in 2019. "Our franchises are seeing the growing demand for full-service leasing as well as quality Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks, and it's why we continue to add locations to our network," said Roemer. "This further strengthens our ability to service our customers."

The new PacLease locations joining PacLease in 2019 were:
PacLease Edmonton Kenworth: Calgary, Alberta
PacLease of South Florida: Doral and Clewiston, Florida
Allstate Leasing: Stewartville, Minnesota
MHC Truck Leasing: Omaha, Nebraska
JX PacLease: Morton, Illinois
Maska PacLease: Sherbrooke, Quebec

According to Roemer, "Our customer retention rates are strong. When you combine premium trucks with our stringent preventive maintenance programs, wide selection of fleet services, and strength of the PacLease service network, then you have a combination for success. And that continues to be showcased with our year-end results."
