Area companies and their equipment idled by failed hose assemblies will benefit from PIRTEK USA’s newest PIRTEK Hose Center that opened June 17 in the Perry Township community of Indianapolis, Ind.

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.

Jim Hamilton is general manager of PIRTEK Perry, which consists of three mobile service vans that are ready to “manufacture” hose assemblies at job sites, and a Hose Center at 3015B South Harding St. that is an easily accessible hose source just off I-465 for walk-in customers.

The overall mission of Hamilton 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,” Hamilton said. “All that hassle means costly downtime, interrupted production schedules and ineffective use of manpower.

“In contrast, PIRTEK mobile service technicians will 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.”

A former U.S. Marine, Hamilton brings loads of proficiency to the helm at PIRTEK Perry. His mechanical, management and training skills were developed while he worked for a commercial and industrial ventilation systems company. And his latest stint in workforce recruiting/development makes him just the right man to build a powerful fix-it-fast team.

“We are very proud of our family-owned and operated business, and we have a very strong team in place,” said Hamilton, who is relocating his family from Florida back to his homeland state to begin his venture in PIRTEK franchise ownership. “Everyone is excited about getting to work and providing timely hose replacement service to manufacturing, construction, trucking and rental companies and many more accounts throughout the city.”

Hose Shops on Wheels

Area hydraulic hose users — and passersby in general — are sure to take notice of PIRTEK Perry’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. (0.64 to 3.2 cm) diameters.

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

Mobile service will be available around the clock by calling 317/252-0120. The Hose Center will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
