Pirtek: four new German franchise start-ups since the beginning of the year
Pirtek, a provider of on-site hydraulic hose repairs, has already opened up three new franchise businesses in Germany this year, namely in Osnabrück, Munich and Braunschweig. In an interview with the German Internet portal, Franchiseportal, the company also announced that a fourth centre is due to start business in the city of Ulm at the end of July. A further three franchise businesses are expected to be up and running before the end of the year, increasing the network there to over 40 centres.
According to Bernd Weber, managing director of Pirtek Deutschland, the aim is to have expanded the network to between 60 and 70 franchisees by 2011. Pirtek was founded in Australia at the beginning of the 80s. Today, it has become a global network. It also has an extensive network in Europe and is active in countries such as Belgium, France, Ireland, Holland and Great Britain.
Pirtek specializes in providing an on-site hydraulic hose repair service, for example if a digger’s hydraulic hose bursts at a building site. Using mobile service centres containing all standard hoses and fittings, Pirtek promises to replace the hose quickly and efficiently.
