PIRTEK USA’s newest PIRTEK Hose Service Center opened its doors on Sept. 3, 2013, in Rockville, Md. — a suburb northwest of Washington, D.C. The mobile-based hydraulic hose and fitting franchise will reduce equipment downtime and increase productivity by bringing hose and fitting replacement services directly to customer job sites within one hour of a call for assistance, according to the company.

David Entwistle is the owner of PIRTEK Rockville, which consists of three mobile service vans that are ready to “manufacture” hose assemblies at job sites, and a hose service center at 14803 Southlawn Lane, Suite A, that is an easily accessible hose source just off I-270 for walk-in customers.

The overall mission of Entwistle and his crew is to eliminate customers’ time and effort in replacing hose assemblies, especially when budgets and deadlines are at stake.

“Failed hose assemblies are a pain in the neck, especially when you have to find a replacement source, battle traffic to retrieve a new hose assembly, return to the job site and install the replacement hose,” Entwistle said. “All that hassle means costly downtime, interrupted production schedules and ineffective use of manpower.

“In contrast, PIRTEK mobile service technicians will bring the hose shop to the company’s job site, quickly assess needs, remove failed hose assemblies, manufacture replacement assemblies and install them, and make sure the equipment is running again before leaving the job site.

“We have a very strong team in place, and I am excited to begin this venture in PIRTEK franchise ownership”, said Entwistle. “Everyone is looking forward to getting to work and providing timely hose replacement service to manufacturing, construction, trucking and rental companies and many more accounts throughout the area.”

We Bring the Hose Shop to You

Area hydraulic hose users — and passersby in general — are sure to take notice of PIRTEK Rockville’s colorful mobile service vans that will be stocked with everything needed to manufacture hose assemblies at job sites. The “hose shops on wheels” carry a large selection of hoses and fittings, including braided and spiral hose styles and standard and metric hose fittings and adapters. Each van’s high-capacity crimp machine has the capability to produce crimped hose assemblies from ¼- to 1¼-in. (.6 to 3 cm) diameters.

Serving as home base to the van fleet, the hose service center also will be stocked with a wide variety of hoses, fittings and adapters for made-to-order hose assemblies.

Mobile service is available around the clock by calling 301/910-4673. The hose service center will be open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
