Since opening Pirtek Norcross in April 2004, owner Mike McCarthy has seen the positive impact of his services on local businesses — so much so that McCarthy opened his second location, Pirtek Smyrna, at 4895 S. Atlanta Road in October.

“It’s very exciting to own a business that provides such a needed service to so many companies,” said McCarthy, an engineer by training who previously worked for GE and Siemens. “Atlanta is a city that’s always growing and it’s because of that growth that Pirtek has enjoyed such success in the area. Pirtek Norcross was doing very well but we realized that we could better serve our many clients on the west side of Atlanta by opening a second location.”

Founded in 1996, Rockledge, Fla.-based Pirtek USA provides ETA 1 Hour On-Site Hose Replacement. Pirtek offers a 24/7 service that serves almost every facet of industry including construction, manufacturing, transportation, agriculture and engineering.

“With the new center up and running, and fellow entrepreneur Mike Nagle’s Center in Red Oak, Pirtek will have eight vans on the road in the Greater Metro Atlanta area,” McCarthy said.
