In the Pipeline Q2 2019


There’s something of a maritime theme to this quarter’s issue and hydraulics, with their ability to transfer both force and motion, can be found in many applications, some of them quite surprising. One of the more unusual jobs that Pirtek has been involved with is the rehosing and servicing of The Matthew of Bristol, a replica of the 15th century Portuguese-style caravel that carried John Cabot to Newfoundland five years after Columbus made it to the Caribbean. Taking tourists and educational trips around Bristol harbour and the Avon Gorge, the modern namesake has a hydraulic motor to provide backup power! Another theme this quarter is growth and renewal. With its one hour ETA, Pirtek is always looking to expand its network and increase its coverage. In this issue we showcase the reopened centre in Cardiff which, with its strategic location in the Welsh capital, will form a strategic hub in the South Wales network. Further north, Stuart Brown takes on the Wigan franchise after a 25-year career in hydraulics.

Pirtek means quality service

Above and beyond is a watchword for Pirtek. Also in South Wales, Pirtek Swansea demonstrates its can-do attitude by taking on a diverse range of jobs, beyond its core business. The franchise has received excellent feedback for the level of service it delivers and as such is getting repeat and expanded business from grateful customers.

‘Above and beyond is a watchword for Pirtek’

High standards are synonymous with the Pirtek brand. For this reason, Ben Jones of Pirtek

Edinburgh has worked to attain Constructionline Gold Membership, meaning he is effectively on a list of approved suppliers for large companies and major projects. His work, office and health and safety procedures are all verified to be of a high quality and they must meet a number of different certifications to achieve this Gold Membership. All of this is good for his balance sheet and good for the customers that need a service they can trust.

With winter passed and summer now within sight, it is as well to remember the service provided by Pirtek whatever the weather.
