PIRTEK Rockford, which provides onsite hydraulic and industrial hose service to businesses in Rockford, IL, is now open for business. Bert Banaszak, new owner of the mobile-only service, previously served as a branch manager at another PIRTEK location in the Chicago area.
With the addition of PIRTEK Rockford, there are now six PIRTEK locations in Illinois and 85 across the country. Rockford is the largest city in Illinois outside the Chicago metropolitan area and the third-largest in the state. “We just saw a void that needed to be filled,” Banaszak said. “I’m excited about this market opportunity. As a business owner my philosophy is simple: Provide excellent service and be fair to everybody.”
PIRTEK specializes in hydraulic and industrial hose service through its locations across the country. PIRTEK team members are also available 24/7 to provide on site repairs to hydraulic and industrial hoses, thanks to the company’s specially equipped Mobile Service Vehicles. PIRTEK boasts more than 400 franchise locations in 23 countries around the world.
“Rockford has been up and coming for a number of years,” Banaszak said. “Companies we work with already have branches there. During the past few years, they’ve been ramping up, so it’s good timing.”
