June 15, 2007 - (Rockledge, FL) - When you’re on the job site, the last thing you need is an inoperable hose sidelining your efforts. Though industries spend tens of millions of dollars on equipment technology, the usual routine for replacing a bad hose is anything but advanced. Countless hours and dollars are wasted going to a local hose supplier for a replacement. Larger companies have the luxury of having their own inventory of hose and fittings along with a crimping machine, but often such equipment is nowhere near a job site.
To avoid such time-consuming and costly situations, Pirtek should be the first number you call. Pirtek is the world’s leading service provider of on-site hose replacement and offers 24/7 service to industries including construction, manufacturing, agriculture, food processing, transportation and engineering, and is rapidly increasing its number of locations. There are currently 37 Pirtek service centers and over 150 Pirtek Mobile Service Units serving major metropolitan markets throughout the United States. Projections call for 16 new service centers in 2007, including locations in Raleigh, NC; Columbus, OH; Jacksonville, FL; Milwaukee, WI and more.
Pirtek’s Mobile Service Units usually arrive within one hour of a service call, carrying a technically qualified Mobile Sales and Service Technician (MSST) and stocked with a full range of hoses and more than 700 different fittings and adaptors, along with a crimping press and cut-off saw, to manufacture hose assemblies on site. Pirtek not only carries standard component parts to manufacture hose assemblies on-site, but also a wide range of European and Japanese metric fittings to match most any equipment and hard-to-find products most distributors don’t regularly stock.
“Pirtek is like the FedEx of the hose industry,” said Gwyn O’Kane, Pirtek USA’s vice president of franchise development. “Our customers are businesses that appreciate that the single-most valuable commodity in the world is time. Pirtek service reduces down time and saves these businesses money so they can make more money.”
Providing timely and cost-effective service to industry is a hallmark of Pirtek’s service centers and mobile vans, but it isn’t necessarily the norm in the business-to-business sector. Pirtek’s service centers provide the hub for its entry into metropolitan markets, which generally have minimum populations of 250,000 to 300,000. Each Pirtek service center has at least three mobile van units operating in a market, aimed at serving as many customers as possible.
