About Pirtek

PIRTEK is a unique B2B franchise and one of the few industrial franchises available. Where there’s industry, there’s demand for hydraulic and industrial hose replacement. Countless pieces of equipment operate via hydraulics or pneumatics, requiring regular hose replacement. PIRTEK franchise owners reap the benefits of that ongoing need, building successful businesses and creating the lifestyle they’ve dreamed of. With over 40 years of franchising experience, PIRTEK service based franchises reduce equipment downtime, keeping machines and businesses operating.

The business boasts 400+ Service & Supply Centers and a fleet of Mobile Service Vehicles in 23 countries. A PIRTEK franchise can capitalize on opportunities wherever industrial equipment is used – virtually everywhere.


PIRTEK is a great franchise to choose because we operate within a B2B model. While we do serve individuals in need of hydraulic services, most of our customers are businesses. Hydraulic hoses are an important part of many vehicles and machines, and when they break down, companies stand to lose money. For instance, if a piece of construction equipment breaks down, the time a team spends on the job will increase. PIRTEK helps them to get up and running quickly with our wide selection of parts and our fast, mobile response team. Because we largely work with other businesses who need our services, we’re more resistant to economic downturn than other companies.

With over 40 years of franchising experience, PIRTEK reduces equipment downtime by repairing and maintaining hydraulic and pneumatic powered machines, keeping machines and businesses operation.

The business boasts 400+ Service & Supply Centers and a fleet of Mobile Service Vehicles in 23 countries. It is well matched to entrepreneurs who understand the value of building relationships. A PIRTEK franchise can capitalize on opportunities wherever industrial equipment is used – virtually everywhere.
