Franchise Opportunities: Why Choose Us

Why Choose Us

Pirtek has been an established franchised business in the UK since 1985 and is a full member of the British Franchise Association.

All Pirtek franchises are ‘business format’ as opposed to a one man van type operation.  Each franchise has a designated territory and within that area has at least one Centre that is open to the public as well as acting as a base for the business in terms of holding stock and providing support to their mobile engineers.

Pirtek is essentially a 24/7 emergency service providing ‘hydraulic solutions’ to a wide range of industries.  The bulk of our work is replacing burst or damaged hydraulic hoses via the mobile service engineers.   Each service engineer operates from a mobile workshop where hydraulic hose assemblies can be made on site.  Our service promise is to attend urgent jobs within one hour of receiving the job to get the machine up and running and reduce costly and inconvenient downtime.

Pirtek places great emphasis on training and all our service engineers undergo City and Guilds approved training at our dedicated facility in Birmingham.   Our engineers work in a wide variety of industries and situations and a thorough understanding and application of health and safety practices is essential.  We only use the highest quality hoses and fittings that have been tested for compatibility and are sourced through Pirtek UK.

Our business model has been long proven but Pirtek is committed to on-going and continuous improvement in the service we offer our customers.   We and our franchise network hold ISO 9001 (quality systems), ISO 14001 (environmental standard) and OHSAS 18001 (health and safety) approvals.

In terms of investment this depends on the size of the franchise being sold and can vary from £200,000 to £1,000,000.   We have an excellent relationship and reputation with the high street banks who typically provide 70% of the total investment required.

Our successful franchisees come from a wide range of backgrounds but they all have the following characteristics in common;

  • very high standards in everything that they do
  • follow the tried and tested Pirtek business model
  • use Pirtek systems and IT to their full effect
  • a good technical/engineering understanding/appreciation
  • they are very good people managers and team builders

Our franchise opportunities are limited as all are through re-sales and the areas currently for sale are detailed on our website.

Thank you for your interest in Pirtek.
