FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Fort Wayne-based Premier Truck Rental is expanding its headquarters near Fort Wayne International Airport. The company announces that it will invest nearly $5 million to add warehouses and offices and create up to 65 jobs by the end of 2025.
PTR says the expansion will add a total of 24,000 square feet of space as well as additional infrastructure in response to its growing vehicle fleet.
The company provides commercial vehicle and equipment rentals to construction companies, utilities, utility contractors, and wind and solar contractors nationwide.
“Our family has been in the Northeast Indiana area and in the rental business for over 30 years. We love the community here and are excited to continue planting more roots and growing our footprint here locally,” PTR President Adriene Horn said in written remarks. “We’ve been fortunate to continue to experience strong growth, and this expansion will only give us more room to grow!”
PTR currently employs over 110 people in Fort Wayne. The company says it is looking to add employees in various departments.
Construction of the expansion is expected to be completed by June 2023.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered PTR a total of up to $700,000 in conditional tax credits and training grants. The company will not be eligible to claim the incentives until Hoosier workers are hired for the new jobs.
Greater Fort Wayne Inc. says Northeast Indiana Works will provide additional hiring and training assistance, while the Fort Wayne City Council will consider additional incentives.
