Parts Manager Joe Foruria

Joe Foruria

Parts Manager

I am the parts manager at Northwest Power Systems. I joined Northwest Power Systems in 2018 and I am proud to say that since then we have expanded our in-house Perkins inventory and we now offer Isuzu Diesel, Multiquip, Briggs and Stratton, Winco and other generator manufacturer’s parts. If you need a new or replacement engine or even a new generator, we can offer some very affordable options. With connections throughout the industry we can locate most any generator part necessary. However, if you need a special or obsolete generator part, rest assured we will go out of our way to find the parts you need. Give me a call and I’ll find it for you!

As a service coordinator, I maintain administrative workflow and effectively communicate customer’s needs to the service manager and technicians. I also organize the field service job reports so that the technicians can have their daily transactions run smoothly for day to day operations. Good communication and organization is key to making our business run smoothly!
