New Pirtek Norfolk Owner To Grow Presence And Seek Additional Business From Military, Seaports, Airports

Pirtek Franchise The Only Hydraulic Hose Service Company Operating In Port City

May 22, 2018 // // Norfolk, VA, USA - Pirtek Norfolk is under new ownership. Jeff Ohstrom, who has a distinguished career working in corporate America for many years, made the decision recently to step out and become a business owner. He began researching various business opportunities when he discovered Pirtek.

“I found Pirtek to be very appealing because it’s business-to-business, and I was impressed with the 24/7/365 service that Pirtek provides its clients,” Ohstrom said. “In addition, there’s a good market in Norfolk - it’s a prime location, a good opportunity for growth.”

Pirtek Norfolk serves a broad base of clients that includes military, seaport and airports. Ohstrom will seek growth by providing excellent service to customers in the Norfolk area. When a hydraulic hose fails on a piece of equipment - idling manufacturing or construction operations - a Pirtek technician arrives on site to make the repair and get things running again.

After serving in the U.S. Army for eight years, Ohstrom worked for some multinational companies, the last one for 27 years. He considered starting up a new Pirtek franchise but found out that the Norfolk Service & Supply Center was available. “I liked the fact that it was already up and running,” he said.

The Pirtek franchise has been at 5760 Northampton Blvd, #104, Virginia Beach, VA, for about 10 years. The new owner said he is excited about expanding the business. “I’m really looking forward to getting involved in the community and meeting our customers. We have a great team in place, and we want to be the ones our clients trust most”

Pirtek is the only franchise of its kind in the United States, providing hydraulic and industrial hose replacement sales and services. There are 75 Pirtek franchises and a fleet of Mobile Service Vehicles throughout the United States. Globally, Pirtek has more than 400 locations and 2,000 Mobile Service Vehicles in 23 countries.
