Ryder opens new service facility in Paradise, Canada

Ryder System has announced the opening of its 17,500 sq ft service facility in Paradise, Newfoundland, Canada. The service facility provides commercial vehicle maintenance for Ryder’s growing full service lease, rental, and on-demand maintenance customers.

The Paradise facility is located near the 1 and 2 TransCanada Highways and only a few minutes from the former Mount Pearl facility. It will feature maintenance equipment with 11 commercial service bays, one wash bay, two 65 ft trailer bays, as well as new amenities including a customer reception area and driver lounge. The facility is situated on 1.8 acres of land.

“Ryder continues to see growth and expansion in Newfoundland as businesses look to outsource fleet management and maintenance,” said Jerry Brown, Fleet Management Solutions Vice President & General Manager, Ryder Canada. “As the Newfoundland market grows, we’ll grow with it. With our new facility, we can provide customers in Newfoundland with more diverse, advanced maintenance services, an expanded staff of expert technicians, and the latest maintenance technologies in a larger, more modern space.”
