PacLease franchise Cooper Leasing Inc has more than just its 20th anniversary to celebrate in 2002. The franchise, with locations in Charlotte, Durham, Raleigh, Newton Grove, and Wilmington NC, has recently been named Paccar Leasing Co's North American Franchise of the Year.

Cooper's five locations, with another soon to open in Clinton NC, offer leasing of medium- and heavy-duty Kenworth trucks. The PacLease franchise is a division of Cooper Kenworth Inc, a company founded in Durham in 1973.
