PIRTEK Pike Opens to Expand Service in Indianapolis Area
A new PIRTEK has opened its doors to expand the company’s hydraulic hose replacement service in the Indianapolis metro area. PIRTEK Pike’s Service & Supply Center is located at 4219 West 96th St. in northeast Indianapolis. The opening broadens the coverage area for owner Ian Harley, who also owns PIRTEK Perry at 3015 South Harding St. in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“PIRTEK has been very well-received in Indianapolis,” Harley said. “I wanted to better serve our customers, give them even faster response times. That’s why I opened this new location. It increases our capabilities here and puts us nearer to some of our key customers. It also allows us to carry more inventory and additional technical capacity.”
A team of 10, including eight mobile technicians, now covers the expansive Indianapolis market.
Harley’s first PIRTEK in Indianapolis opened in 2013. Since then, he’s made it a point to train his employees and prepare them for advancement into leadership roles. Josh Mendoza, originally a service technician, has been promoted to branch manager of the new PIRTEK location. The new branch manager said he’s honored to be in his current position.
“For the last three years, I’ve felt proud to work for a company that not only has a great reputation but also respects and supports its employees,” Mendoza said. “PIRTEK recognizes hard work and rewards the effort with opportunities for career advancement. I’ve enjoyed the challenges and increased responsibilities as I’ve grown in my career. This has been possible because I’m surrounded by colleagues who truly support the team effort.”
Harley has also promoted Keith Venis, a former operations manager at PIRTEK, to run one franchise location as branch manager. “Central to the theme of PIRTEK is that we grow from within,” Harley said. “It’s a business philosophy I take seriously.”
