PIRTEK – A Unique B2B Industrial Based Franchise
PIRTEK is a unique business‐to‐business franchise and is one of the few industrial franchise business opportunities available. Wherever there’s industry, there’s plenty of demand for hydraulic and industrial hose maintenance, repair, and replacement services by PIRTEK. Countless pieces of equipment operate via hydraulics or pneumatics, with hoses that require regular replacement. Franchise owners can reap the benefits of that ongoing need, allowing you to build a successful business, which affords you the lifestyle you’ve dreamed of.
With more than 30 years of franchising experience, the PIRTEK service‐based business focuses on reducing equipment downtime by repairing and maintaining hydraulic and pneumatic powered machines, to keep machines and production crews in operation.
The business boasts 500+ Service & Supply Centers and a fleet of Mobile Service Vehicles in 23 countries. It is well matched to entrepreneurs who understand the value of building relationships. A PIRTEK franchise can capitalize on opportunities wherever industrial equipment is used ‐ i.e., virtually everywhere.
