South Florida Business Journal: Pirtek signs first South Florida franchise, seeking more dealers

Pirtek, the national hydraulic hose replacement franchise, expands to South Florida.

Pirtek USA has returned to the company’s founding family, with Glenn Duncan, son of Pirtek founder Peter Duncan, successfully completing a buyout of majority control of the American arm of the company. This acquisition will allow Pirtek USA to benefit from additional resources held by the company’s international locations, as well as streamline operations for franchisees in the U.S.

In his interview with the South Florida Business Times, VP of Development at Pirtek Gwyn O’Kane explained that Pirtek stands out from competition because of its mobile service. The brand sends technicians out to customers at any time to make repairs, allowing them to get back to work quickly.

“You can’t buy this stuff online,” he said. “There’s competition around town but few have mobile service."

The brand has 52 locations nationwide. Each location begins with 3 vans and 5 employees.
