Birmingham’s Oxmoor Industrial Park is in the heart of the area’s metropolitan market and is home to a broad variety of businesses representing a cross-section of industries. Steve Kampwerth chose this thriving industrial hub for the location of his new PIRTEK Hoover franchise because he realized what all of these diverse businesses had in common – a need for reliable hydraulic and industrial hose services.
Steve’s Service and Supply Center, located at 131 W Oxmoor Road, Suite 101 Birmingham, AL 35209, enjoys easy access to major transportation freeways. The center is within 5 minutes of I-65 and 15 minutes from the I-20/59 and I-459 bypass. The new location opened on August 31st as a Tier 1 business under PIRTEK’s franchise structure.
Steve says that his Service and Supply Center will provide support for larger hose requirements on-site in a 5,000 square foot flex space, servicing not only hydraulic – but brake, air, and A/C hoses as well. He’s excited to offer these types of specialized on-site services for his local customers.
Steve Kampwerth first became interested in PIRTEK USA in 2019, when he saw that the brand was recognized by Franchise Direct as a Top 100 Global Franchise. After gathering information about the brand and its franchise structure, Steve was ready to become a franchisee. He attended PIRTEK’s Discovery Day at their corporate headquarters in March of 2020. While some may have reconsidered starting a new business just as country-wide quarantines were taking effect for the COVID-19 crisis, Steve remained confident.
Steve has set his goals high for the future of PIRTEK Hoover. He hopes to expand, and open more Service and Supply Centers in the area. This would enhance customer service and help his technicians to maintain their commitment to 1-hour response times.
Steve is ready to give the Birmingham area quality hydraulic and industrial hose service and says that he feels that “the market is anxious to leverage those services to reduce their operating costs,” as well. He plans on building his business around mutually beneficial, long-lasting business relationships with his customers.
