The PIRTEK USA chain of hydraulic and industrial hose service providers recently launched a new franchise, PIRTEK Upstate, in South Carolina.
Entrepreneurs Brian Gourley and Nathan Lee opened the new business to support the multitude of construction companies that are scrambling to keep pace with a population boom in the Southeastern U.S.
Gourley and Lee say they will base their mobile service vehicles in close proximity to interstates I-85 and I-26, which are major arteries servicing much of the southeast quadrant of the state. This will allow their mobile sales and service technicians to dispatch quickly and provide fast on-site service to customers in surrounding areas.
Centrally located between the large cities of Charlotte and Atlanta, PIRTEK Upstate will provide hydraulic and industrial hose replacement service under the company’s Tier 2 program. This option enables entrepreneurs to start a franchise at a lower point of entry. Under Tier 2, a franchisee can keep their inventory in a small warehouse or storage facility and start with two vehicles. The standard Tier 1 model requires a franchisee to have a full Service & Supply Center staffed with six team members and at least two mobile service vehicles. Tier 2 owners often make the decision to advance to a Tier 1 location as their business grows.
