PIRTEK Opens Service & Supply Center in Metro New Orleans
PIRTEK now has a Service & Supply Center in the greater New Orleans area.
The new location at 5229 River Road, in Harahan, LA, is prepared to address the hydraulic hose replacement and maintenance needs of the area’s marine and industrial sectors. PIRTEK Elmwood is located in southeast Louisiana’s largest industrial park, about 10 minutes from the New Orleans city limits.
The only franchise of its kind in the United States, PIRTEK provides hydraulic and industrial hose replacement sales and services. There are 58 PIRTEK Service & Supply Centers and a fleet of Mobile Service Vehicles throughout the United States. Globally, PIRTEK has more than 400 locations and 2,000 Mobile Service Vehicles in 23 countries around the world.
During his long career at Grainger Industrial Supply in New Orleans, owner Carl Prince worked with many local companies to help them manage their inventories, even during such crises as the BP oil spill and the Hurricane Katrina aftermath.
“I know the industry, where the services can be used,” Prince said. “I worked in the New Orleans market for well over 20 years. In some cases, I know the players. The idea of owning a PIRTEK here just clicked.”
