What is PIRTEK?
PIRTEK has been in the hydraulic hose repair and replacement franchise business for more than 40 years. Our franchisees own and operate stores and fleets of vehicles in order to provide hydraulic hose repair and replacement to all sorts of clients. Not only can customers come to our retail stores to purchase the products and services they need to keep their hydraulic systems running smoothly, our mobile service units can go right to them to offer help when it’s needed most. Since hydraulic systems are an integral part of most machines, we have a wide customer base. We work with individuals and businesses alike, so our services are always in-demand.

Who is Qualified to Run a PIRTEK Industrial Franchise?
Our franchisees don’t need to be mechanical experts. Rather, they work on growing their business, marketing, record keeping, scheduling new clients, and hiring mechanically inclined employees to handle repairs and sales.
We’re looking for franchisees who are dedicated to growing a new business and who aren’t afraid to put in a lot of hands-on work – especially during the early days of their PIRTEK franchise. Our franchisees come from all sorts of backgrounds: corporate executives, mechanics/operators, and those with managerial experience and are all looking to take the next step in their career. If you’re dedicated to starting and growing your own business, you might be a good fit for an industrial franchise!
Why Should I Partner with PIRTEK Instead of Going it Alone?
There are many advantages to working with PIRTEK. Independent owners don’t have our resources or experience, and they can’t look forward to the personal guidance our franchisees enjoy. Some of the support PIRTEK franchise owners take advantage of every day include:
- Use of our well-established brand name and marketing materials
- One-on-one business coaching
- Access to our computer systems, software, and other tech resources
- Use of our time-tested business model
How Much Does It Cost to Open a PIRTEK B2B Franchise?
The exact cost of starting a PIRTEK franchise will vary depending on factors like your size and location. That being said, we offer two franchise tiers that start at different price points.
TIER 1 FRANCHISE
These full-service franchises include a brick-and-mortar store, full staff, and vehicles to provide service on-the-go. The cost to open a Tier 1 franchise starts at around $347K, and we look for franchisees with a net worth of $750K.
TIER 2 FRANCHISE
These smaller industrial franchises focus on mobile repair and sales. They don’t include a brick and mortar store, so Tier 2 does cost less to get started. However, it is expected that the franchisee convert to Tier 1 brick-and-mortar status within the first three years. Ideally, the Tier 2 franchise will allow them time to generate the income and establish the customer base that will make this expansion possible. The estimated initial investment for a Tier 2 franchise starts at around $162K.
