PIRTEK Celebrates Opening of Its 50th U.S. Location

Owner Tom Fechter brings 17 years of experience in the hydraulic industry to his new business.

Fri February 27, 2015 - Midwest Edition

PIRTEK, a leader of onsite hose replacement service that is dedicated to minimizing equipment downtime due to hose failure, opened its 50th Hose Service & Supply Center in Menomonee Falls, just northwest of Milwaukee, Wis., on Feb. 2.

Owner Tom Fechter brings 17 years of experience in the hydraulic industry to his new business. Knowing the demand for PIRTEK in his local market, Fechter said he knew companies would benefit from the second-to-none service PIRTEK provides.

“A hose failure is a big deal for a lot of local industries. Crews standing around waiting for a technician or replacement part can be a waste of time and money, so it’s our job to make sure things are fixed and production resumes as efficiently as possible,” said Fechter.

PIRTEK Menomonee Falls is conveniently located on Lilly Road in Menomonee Falls. Customers will have easy access to the new Hose Service & Supply Center where custom built high pressure hoses can be made over-the-counter, while they wait.

Carrying a wide range of inventory which includes 3600, 5000 and 6000 P.S.I. hydraulic hoses, quick disconnect couplings, adapters, hose clamps, pressure wash hoses, nozzles and wands, pressure gauges and 50 ft. (15 m) utility hoses will make PIRTEK Menomonee Falls a one stop shop for many local companies.

The Hose Service & Supply Center also will act as a home base for three onsite mobile hose workshops that are available 24/7. Just one call to PIRTEK Menomonee Falls will get a fully trained hose service technician on their way to a job site within one hour. Each onsite hose workshop is fully equipped and stocked to manufacture hose assemblies on the spot.

Onsite service is available around the clock by calling 262/345-9900. The Hose Service & Supply Center, located at W140N5955 Lilly Road in Menomonee Falls, is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
