Twin Pirtek Franchises to Provide Full Service Hydraulic Solutions to Fort Worth Area
July 14, 2020 // Franchising.com // Fort Worth, Texas - As the fastest growing large city in the U.S., Fort Worth is bustling with construction projects, manufacturing, and industrial services. With rapid expansion comes a heavy reliance on crane companies, construction crews, heavy equipment suppliers, various manufacturers, and other contractors. Chan Davis saw a need for reliable hydraulic and industrial hose services in the area to support all of these businesses, and decided to open two new Pirtek franchises; Pirtek Fort Worth North and Pirtek Fort Worth South. His two locations - both set to open July 13th - will coordinate to provide excellent service to the entire city and surrounding areas.
Pirtek Fort Worth North, located at 5001 North Freeway, Suite 143, Fort Worth, Texas 76106, is opening as a Tier 1 business under Pirtek’s franchise structure. This requires a franchisee to have a full Service & Supply Center staffed with six team members and at least two Mobile Service Vehicles. Chan’s Pirtek Fort Worth South will begin as a Tier 2 business, which is centered around on-site mobile service, and enables entrepreneurs to start a franchise at a lower point of entry. Under Tier 2, a franchisee can keep the inventory in a small warehouse or storage facility and lease two vehicles. While Tier 2 locations are expected to advance to a Tier 1 location in three years, they also have the option of bypassing this step to open as a Tier 1 model from the beginning. Chan has taken full advantage of Pirtek USA’s personalized franchise options, by opening one of each.
Chan’s background translates well to the industry of hydraulic and industrial hose repair. He spent more than twenty years working as an independent consultant specializing in manufacturing and industrial automation solutions across multiple industries. He has had the opportunity to become acquainted with aspects of many fields such as Automotive, HVAC, Food & Beverage Manufacturing & Processing, Medical & Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Oil & Gas, Aeronautical and more. This hands-on experience has made Chan uniquely qualified for this new chapter as a Pirtek franchise owner.
After exiting the Information Technology space, Chan began looking for something suited to his engineering background. He spent two years researching the market - and Pirtek specifically - before he decided that Fort Worth Texas was the perfect location to open his new businesses. Chan says that his research “revealed Pirtek as a market leader, a solid company and a very involved and collaborative franchisor.” He goes on to describe how Pirtek USA has been extremely involved, providing excellent support throughout his startup process. He cites the brand’s obvious, ongoing support of their franchise network as a primary reason for joining the company.
Chan has set lofty goals for the future of his Pirtek franchises. He intends to be the dominant - if not only - full service hydraulic solutions provider in the Fort Worth market. He plans on reaching that level by providing convenient over-the-counter service through his Service and Supply Center, paired with exceptional on-site mobile service and repair. According to Chan, he will seek out Mobile Service Technicians who are “excellent team players with a strong customer focus” to ensure that his clients receive the best support possible.
