Rockledge, FL - Jim Lager, owner of PIRTEK Love Field located in Dallas, TX has opened his second center in Ft. Worth.
Lager opened his first PIRTEK franchise in Dallas, Texas, in October 2010, and he has been pulling in Texas-sized profits ever since. The mobile-based hose and fitting replacement business specializes in minimizing equipment downtime by "manufacturing" replacement hydraulic hose assemblies at customer jobsites. Although all PIRTEK franchises start out with three mobile service vans based at their PIRTEK Hose Service & Supply Center location, Lager saw the potential and quickly increased his mobile fleet to ten. Since opening his second location Jim has is now blanketing the market with his mobile support vehicles. It doesn't stop here. In addition to Jim's two locations, there is a third PIRTEK Hose Service & Supply Center located just northeast of Dallas in Plano, TX. This location has been owned and operated by Ed Loutherback since February 2010.
"It's awesome to see customers become 'addicted' to our onsite service when they realize how much we minimize their equipment downtime and its associated costs," say Lager. "We quickly size up needs, remove failed hose assemblies, manufacture replacement assemblies on location and install them, and make sure the equipment is back up and humming again before leaving the jobsite. Hydraulic hose is everywhere-even underneath your barber's chair!"
Although Dallas is home to what he calls "a ton of hose shops," Lager doesn't fear the so-called competition. "Most hose shops are not geared up for or are interested in mobile service, so they often refer their customers to PIRTEK."
"I'm not a hands-on hose and fitting guy," he says in a matter-of-fact tone. "I concentrate on having a good, solid relationship with my customers and with my employees. My role is to take excellent care of my customers and my employees, and my staff takes care of the rest.
Serving as home base for its mobile fleet, PIRTEK Meacham's Hose Service & Supply Center located at 5317 Superior Parkway, Ft. Worth is also a convenient hose assembly source for walk-in customers. Like the mobile service vehicles, it too is stocked with a wide variety of hoses, fittings and adapters for made-to-order hose assemblies. Service is available 24/7 simply by calling (817) 989-6425. The Hose Service and Supply Center is open 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday thru Friday and Saturday from 8 am till noon.
