“The Purcell family is excited to add this important center to our network of facilities across the country,” states Mark Laster, manager of the new Tucson location. “We are sitting right next to Interstate 10, one of the largest volumes of truck traffic in the country. We will be able to service fleet vehicles with ease; getting them in and out with quick reliable service.”
