Pirtek USA Expands In Metro Houston With Opening Of Two More Locations
Pirtek Baytown and Pirtek Pearland to pursue hydraulic-hose work in country’s fourth-largest city; will target marine industry and port customers
November 25, 2019 // Franchising.com // Rockledge, FL, USA - Pirtek USA now has five locations spread across metro Houston with the opening of Pirtek Baytown and Pirtek Pearland. Pirtek is the leader in providing hydraulic hose services to a wide variety of businesses and industries across the country.
The Pirtek Baytown Service & Supply Center at 4308 Garth Rd. Ste. A, Baytown, TX 77521.
Pirtek Pearland is a mobile-only location. The mobile-only, Tier 2 model, allows the franchisee to reduce startup costs by keeping the inventory in a small warehouse or storage facility and leasing two vehicles. In three years, Tier 2 owners typically transition the business into Tier 1, a fully staffed Service and Supply Center location.
Both Pirtek locations are positioned near port industries, which are expected to be a significant source of business. “Having the port nearby means there are plenty of industries that use hydraulic hoses,” said Dean Akin, who with his wife, Lisa, owns the two new Houston locations. “In addition to that, there’s ongoing construction, especially when you consider the hurricanes that come through here so often. Most of the business is typical of what Pirtek provides, and there’s plenty of it.”
Pirtek provides hydraulic and industrial hose replacement sales and services to industries including construction, marine, manufacturing and equipment rental. There are now 90 Pirtek franchises and a fleet of Mobile Service Vehicles throughout the country. Globally, Pirtek has more than 400 locations and 2,000 Mobile Service Vehicles in 23 countries.
In addition to the new locations, Akin owns Pirtek Northwest Crossing in Houston. He also owns Pirtek Riverside in Austin, Texas, and Pirtek Broadway in San Antonio. “It’s exciting,” Akin said. “I like the challenge of starting up these new Pirtek locations and getting going.”
Pirtek’s other Houston-area locations are Pirtek Gulfgate and Pirtek Beltway North.
