As the largest city in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia is home to a vast number of businesses in a range of industries. Some of the main economic contributors in the area are manufacturing, oil refining, food processing, construction, and the creation of health care equipment. Nearby marine ports add the commercial shipping industry to the list.
These businesses require a lot of support to keep all of their hydraulic components operational. Ken Adair, a long-time PIRTEK Franchisee based in Illinois, recently took over ownership of the PIRTEK South Philadelphia location. He offers a considerable amount of expertise in hydraulic service to the area.
Ken has had a successful 23-year career as a PIRTEK Franchisee so far and continues to grow. He launched his first service and supply center in the Chicago area over two decades ago. Over the years, he has continuously added more locations, totaling five thriving businesses in and around the Windy City. Now, there are PIRTEK locations in Bolingbrook, Gurnee, McKinley Park, O’Hare, and South Holland.
PIRTEK South Philadelphia, located at 31 Industrial Highway, Essington, PA 19029, is positioned between Interstate I-95 and Industrial Hwy 291, close to the shores of the Delaware River. This location provides fast transit for their Mobile Service Vehicles to job sites throughout the city, as well as to the bustling ports where cargo ships dock for service.
Ken’s many years of experience with his Great Lakes locations will serve him well in his new area because the needs are similar. Ken has a goal of steadily improving PIRTEK South Philadelphia, to reach a higher level of service for the businesses in the area and to hopefully add more locations to meet the growing need for industrial hydraulic hose sales, service, and repairs. Part of reaching that goal relies on having a solid team of technicians.
