From the initial phone call or visit until you have the right product in hand and installed we are your true partner in helping you get the job done.


Delivery

We have over 11,000 items in stock which can ship the same day. Because The Part Works is located here in the Northwest delivery times are next day on stock items which is much faster and less expensive than delivery from suppliers on the east coast or Midwest.

Our close relationships with factories ensures quick deliveries on non-stock items.

The Part Works Competitive Edge

At an average of a 30/70 ratio of materials to labor —
for every dollar spent on materials there is $2.33 spent on labor.

  • This saves you the labor being spent on research and rework.
  • Our on-the-ground technical advisors serve as your consultants at no extra charge
  • Our online ordering, tracking, PO confirmation and shipment notification systems save purchasing agents time — which is money.

Our commitment

When Katie Parris took over the company in 2012 The Part Works became a woman-owned company. We proudly became certified as a Woman Owned Business by WBENC in 2014. As a diversified company we can help you meet your company’s diversification goals.

Northwest Based

By being located here in the great Northwest we can get product to you with shorter shipping times and less shipping expense. Our employees all live here in the Northwest and may very well be some of your customers or neighbors.

History

In 1980 Rick and Sandy Johnson started The Part Works in their garage. We have been serving commercial facilities since then, and today their daughter Katie Parris runs The Part Works from a 16,000 sq. ft. warehouse in south Seattle.

The core values of integrity, fair prices, excellent customer service and technical advising still guide everything we do today.
