In 2019, Steve Kampwerth realized that he could not pass up the industrial franchise opportunity that PIRTEK provides and decided to open a new PIRTEK franchise to help service Birmingham Alabama’s Oxmoor Industrial Park. We are so excited to share that his new store opened on August 31st, 2020, and provides support for customers throughout Alabama. The Birmingham store is located at 131 W. Oxmoor RD., STE. 101 and is accessible to major transportation freeways.
Business to Business Model
Our business to business, or “B2B” model is one of the reasons Kampwerth chose PIRTEK’s industrial franchise opportunity. Franchisees provide services to other businesses instead of directly to consumers. As a result, our franchises don’t have to rely on consumer trends that other companies depend on. Important industries, from agriculture to construction, rely on PIRTEK when things go wrong with their hydraulic hoses. They trust PIRTEK to provide the hoses they need so that they can keep their doors open and revenue coming in. The reason our business model is so successful is because it is built on the premise of mutually beneficial, long-term business relationships. This symbiosis between customers and PIRTEK provides the sense of security franchisees need today.
Tiered Franchise Options
PIRTEK is great for many different types of investors because we use a 2-Tiered system. Franchisees can choose to follow Kampwerth’s lead and open a Tier 1 location or opt for a Tier2.
- Tier 1 locations require a full Service & Supply Center staffed with six team members and at least two Mobile Service Vehicles. This industrial franchise opportunity allows franchisees to work with walk-in customers who need quick access to high-quality hydraulic hose purchases and repairs, while still retaining the mobility that the Mobile Service Vehicles provide.
Not everyone is ready to open a Service & Supply Center right away, and that’s where a Tier 2 franchise investment comes in.
- The Tier 2 investment allows franchisees to start at a lower price point with the opportunity to work up to a Tier 1 franchise within three years. With this franchise concept, franchisees can keep their inventory in a small warehouse or storage facility while leasing two vehicles.
These options allow franchisees to choose the industrial franchise opportunity that is right for them. With both options available, there is no reason not to invest today.
