PIRTEK Woodinville opened its doors on Jan. 10, providing an ETA 1 Hour On-Site Hose Service to the Seattle area. PIRTEK Woodinville is now the second Center serving the Seattle area. PIRTEK Woodinville will be spearheaded by PIRTEK’s newest franchise owner and Bellevue resident, Chad Harkness.

Harkness is no stranger to franchise operations and sales with more than 30 years combined experience at A & G Leasing, A Budget Rent a Car Franchise, and both Avis & Budget Rent a Car Corporate operations, in Colorado and Seattle.

“The Seattle market is already a successful one for PIRTEK and we are poised to serve the diverse industries we are surrounded by in the Eastside and North Puget Sound Areas,” said Harkness.

The new PIRTEK center is located at 16140 Woodinville-Redmond Road NE, Ste 8, Woodinville, WA 98072, near its industrial, construction and manufacturing customers. It also is just 30 minutes from the nearby town of Everett.

The 3,200 sq. ft. center features a 2,100 ft. warehouse stock full of the more common hose and fittings as well as the hard to find metric fittings and adapters.

The team of employees includes three factory trained mobile sales and service technicians (MSSTs), and an operations manager. Three mobile service vans are available. This second location follows the opening of PIRTEK Kent in 2006.

PIRTEK offers a 24 hour, 7 day service that serves almost every facet of industry including construction, manufacturing, transportation, agriculture and engineering among others. When an equipment breakdown occurs, it often results in costly delays in time and labor before the proper replacement hose is located and installed but PIRTEK vans carry the component parts necessary to manufacture hose assemblies on site. Hose and fittings also can be purchased over-the-counter at PIRTEK’s national network of service centers that serve as home bases to its mobile fleet. There are nearly 40 PIRTEK service centers nationwide and more than 170 PIRTEK mobile service vans serving major metropolitan markets throughout the country.
