Aussie-founded Pirtek buys US operation


Australian-founded company Pirtek Fluid Transfer Solutions – a global franchise platform – has acquired Pirtek USA to further expand its worldwide business.

Founded by the Duncan Family, Pirtek already has a global presence and Pirtek International Director, Glenn Duncan, says the acquisition of the US business creates further synergies across the Pacific, while strengthening Pirtek’s existing partnerships in Africa, Canada, China Mongolia, New Zealand and Singapore.

"As a group, this will allow Pirtek to broaden the customer base with a high level of corporate strength and stability, while increasing market share, setting long term objectives and outcomes that we can all be proud of,” said Pirtek International Director, Glenn Duncan.

“We would like to extend our thanks to Morgan Arundel, President of Pirtek USA for giving us the opportunity to bring the United States into our group of companies. We are looking forward to working with the team in America well into the future."

The Pirtek Franchise model was established in Australia in 1980 by the Duncan family and Glen Duncan says it has been recognised as one of the premier franchising formats around the world.

There are over 400 Pirtek Service and Supply Centres and Mobile units globally, 97 of those in Australia, and Pirtek USA opened its 50th Centre in Milwaukee earlier this month.
