PIRTEK USA, a service provider for onsite hydraulic and industrial hose replacement and related product retailer, signed its 100th franchise agreement in December.
The agreement meets a goal the company set three years ago – to reach 100 franchises by the end of 2020.
The franchise will debut PIRTEK in Racine, Wisconsin, with the expansion driven by franchisee Tom Fechter, who grew up working with hydraulic farming equipment and eventually gained more than 32 years of experience in the hydraulics industry. In 2015, he first opened a PIRTEK business in the Milwaukee area, which marked the brand’s 50th location. Hundreds of statewide companies soon realized the value of PIRTEK’s products and services to keep their equipment up and running. Now, Fechter is excited to open another Wisconsin location in an untapped and growing neighboring territory.
The 40-year-old PIRTEK operates in 23 countries with more than 430 units across the globe. Despite the pandemic, PIRTEK continues to service a wide range of industries while growing the brand’s locations. Its 24/7 onsite service offers hydraulic and industrial hose replacements, aiming to minimize downtime and have customers up and running again quickly.
