Premier Truck Rental Celebrates Its 5-Year Anniversary

Premier Truck Rental is proud to announce its fifth year as the leading provider of work trucks throughout the nation. In an era when companies come and go, PTR has achieved a half decade of innovation and steady growth. The company commemorated their anniversary with many events held at their Fort Wayne, Indiana headquarters.

After selling off his previous equipment rental company in 2014, our owner Rob Troxel wasn’t ready to retire. He and his daughter, Adriene Horn, put their heads together to develop a business plan for a different type of rental company – one with smaller equipment. They learned that there was a need in the market for contractors to rent job site ready work trucks. Like up-fitted pickups and flatbeds that arrive with toolboxes, ladder racks, etc. already installed. Allowing the trucks to be immediately put to work upon delivery.

With three team members, and a handful of trucks, PTR launched in summer of 2014. Since then, the company has been blessed with tremendous growth. PTR currently has a nationwide footprint, over 100 employees, and works with many of the top construction and renewables contractors in the country.

To celebrate PTR rewarded all team members to an afternoon full of activities. Including food trucks from Fork & Fiddle and Whip ‘N Chill, an ice cream and dessert truck. Premier also had a great turnout for a team member corn hole tournament. To wrap up the festivities a fun game of Family Feud Live PTR Edition was held.

Premier’s continual upgrading of existing products and investment into its team members reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to delivering innovative, powerful, and robust solutions for numerous industries. “Our success is due in part to the advanced capabilities and continuous improvement of our products,” states Vice President Adriene Horn. “It comes down to the team members who are here every day putting in all the hours to make sure our clients have the highest quality units.”
