Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) announces that Premier Trailer Leasing (Premier) has secured a lease for a 12-acre parcel at 5414 East Houston Street, marking the company’s entrance into the San Antonio market and its fourth Texas location. Premier - one of the largest trailer leasing and rental companies in the nation - specializes in long-term leasing and short-term rental services for over-the-road vans, flatbeds, refrigerated equipment and chassis with an inventory of 45,000+ assets.
“In addition to Premier’s established Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston facilities, our entrance into the San Antonio market allows us to provide equipment and transportation solutions in southern Texas,” said Jim Aubuchon, Premier’s president and CEO. “The San Antonio market, a connector to the U.S.-Mexico border, is an exceptional location for a new facility and Premier is dedicated to the market and surrounding communities.”
NKF Associate Director Scott Lewis represented Premier in the lease from Hime Living Trust, represented by Turcotte Real Estate Services.
“NKF conducted a market survey, which yielded more than 50 site options. We then worked with Premier to identify three viable options and, ultimately, selected a readily available site, which was configured almost exactly as needed,” said Lewis. “I was thrilled to help support Premier’s strategic move, which will allow the company to capitalize on San Antonio’s remarkable growth.”
The San Antonio market is well poised for growth and development, particularly when it comes to land. The San Antonio Economic Development Foundation (SAEDF) counts its abundance of land as one of its main recruiting tools for developers and companies looking to relocate or expand. (1) Interest in San Antonio is growing, as evidenced by projects such as a $400 million Aisin AW auto parts manufacturing facility and a planned truck assembly plant for Navistar. Premier Trailer Leasing’s entry in to the San Antonio market early in the expansion cycle will allow the company to take full advantage of business opportunities that arise in the coming years.
