Pirtek was established in the UK in the 1980’s and has for many years been the leading provider of emergency on-site hydraulic hose replacement services to a wide variety of commercial and industrial customers.
Pirtek is a business format franchisee (as opposed to the one-man-van approach) in that you will be managing a team of technicians and support staff. The ability to manage and motivate a team is therefore essential for your success. Together with man management skills our franchisees need to have a thorough technical appreciation of our market.
We now have over 80 franchise operations covering all of the UK and Ireland. All franchise sales are re-sales and any new franchisee will be acquiring an established business with a loyal and well serviced customer base. Our customers cover a wide range of commercial and industrial activity and as such our business is not overly dependent on one business sector.
Many of our franchisees have been trading for over 15 years and the Pirtek business model is well proven. We provide a fast response to customers using top quality products assembled on site by City & Guilds qualified technicians. All of our technicians have been trained at our dedicated Training Centre in Birmingham and all of our operations are accredited to; ISO 9001 (quality management systems), ISO 14001 (environmental management) and OHSAS 18001 (Health and Safety).
As well as providing a mobile service every Pirtek franchise has at least one Centre open to the public where customers can obtain custom made hydraulic hose assemblies and other fluid transfer solution products. The Centre acts as the base for support staff and for holding stock.
Pirtek UK provides comprehensive support to our franchisees through; effective IT and job management systems, industry leading training services, operational and sales field support and national account management.
Pirtek was a founding member of the British Franchise Association and is fully compliant with the bfa code of ethics.
Being such a long established and successful franchise we have excellent relationships with all the major banks.
