Since opening PIRTEK Norcross in April 2004, owner Mike McCarthy has seen the positive impact of his services on local businesses - so much so that McCarthy has opened his second location, PIRTEK Smyrna.
Founded in 1996, Rockledge, Florida-based PIRTEK USA provides ETA 1 Hour On-Site Hose Replacement. PIRTEK offers a 24-hour, 7-day service that serves almost every facet of industry including construction, manufacturing, transportation, agriculture and engineering. When an equipment breakdown occurs, PIRTEK vans carry the component parts necessary to manufacture hose assemblies on site. Hose and fittings can also be purchased over-the-counter at PIRTEK's national network of service centers.
"It's very exciting to own a business that provides such a needed service to so many companies," said McCarthy, an engineer by training who previously worked for GE and Siemens. "Atlanta is a city that's always growing and it's because of that growth that PIRTEK has enjoyed such success in the area. PIRTEK Norcross was doing very well but we realized that we could better serve our many clients on the west side of Atlanta by opening a second location."
