March 29, 2011, Downers Grove, IL – NationaLease, one of the largest full service truck leasing organizations in North America, has expanded its network of independent trucking companies with the addition of three new companies which have been approved for full membership.

The state of Texas is represented by two new member companies, Southwest Leasing, a NationaLease Member, headquartered in Dallas, and LTG Lonestar NationaLease, based in Grapevine. Also new to the ranks of NationaLease membership is Location NRJ Leasing, a NationaLease Member, located in Drummondville, Quebec, Canada.

“In order to qualify for full membership to NationaLease, each company was required to grow their leasing organization to at least 50 units in full service leasing or contract maintenance,” Scoggins explained. “We are very proud to welcome these three exemplary companies into our network and consider each to be a valuable asset to the organization.”

As a full member in NationaLease, each company can take advantage of the organization’s combined purchasing power, while maintaining its independent business status.
