PIRTEK Rockville Opens its Doors Providing On-Site Hose Replacement in the Washington, D.C. Area
501 Haverty Court

Press release date: September 6, 2013
Rockville, Maryland … Area companies and their equipment idled by failed hose assemblies will surely benefit from PIRTEK USA’s newest PIRTEK Hose Service Center that opened its doors on September 3, 2013 in Rockville, Maryland -- a suburb northwest of Washington DC. 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 jobsites within one hour of a call for assistance.
David Entwistle is the owner of PIRTEK Rockville, which consists of three mobile service vans that are ready to “manufacture” hose assemblies at jobsites, 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 jobsite and install the replacement hose,” Entwistle says. “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 companies jobsite, quickly assess needs, remove failed hose assemblies, manufacture replacement assemblies and install them, and make sure the equipment is running again before leaving the jobsite.”
Entwistle, who is no stranger to starting and promoting businesses, brings loads of entrepreneurial experience and enthusiasm to the helm at PIRTEK Rockville. His management and training skills were developed as the founder and President of a thriving food and beverage wholesale company. His proven leadership skills make him just the right man to build a powerful fix-it-fast team.
“We have a very strong team in place, and I am excited to begin this venture in PIRTEK franchise ownership”, says 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.”
