Parts Technicians manage and dispense parts inventories, which may include automotive, heavy duty, farm implement, industrial, recreational vehicle, jobber, plumbing, electrical and many other sectors and fields.
Parts Technicians may be responsible for stock handling, identifying and cataloguing parts and assemblies as well as ordering, operating lift truck equipment, receiving, inspecting, sorting, pricing and selling, depending on business areas.


The specific duties a parts person technician performs depend upon the size of the wholesale, retail or warehouse distribution business and the types of parts involved.  Some businesses specialize in one line of equipment such as a particular line of automotive parts. Others, stock parts for several makes of machinery as well as a wide variety of hardware supplies. Parts technicians must be knowledgeable in the use of all in-house equipment, including computers, calculators, fax and materials handling equipment, and be able to contribute to the operation and principles of operation of the business.


Experienced parts technicians who have business and technical experience may advance to supervisory positions such as parts department manager, store manager or even store owner.  With some sales experience, parts technicians can move into sales representative positions.

Industry Changes

The global warehousing concept has gained popularity over the last decade as stock pre-positioning becomes one of the strategies for ensuring a timely response to emergencies. For such operations, experience and knowledge of organizations use, information systems that are computer based, with sophisticated software to help in the planning and management of the warehouse.


New technologies have greatly improved the tools used to manage inventories. Powerful computer systems that are linked into networks are now able to receive information from handheld devises. The wireless handheld devices scan bar codes on inventory items and send data to a tracking database in real time. The popular just-in-time manufacturing system is an excellent tool to know.


Newer systems of inventory control and management are vendor-managed inventory (VMI) systems and agreements. In a VMI system distributors and/or manufacturers agree to take over the inventory management for their customers. Based on daily reports sent automatically from the customer to the distributor, the distributor replenishes the customers stocks as needed. The distributor or manufacturer sees what is selling and makes all necessary arrangements to send the customer new products or parts automatically. No phone calls or paperwork are necessary allowing the supply chain process to remain uninterrupted.


Safe working practices and accident prevention are the primary importance to the health and safety of all person(s) at any or all work place environments. All person(s) including employee, employer and government, share this responsibility in order to keep everyone free of any dangers or accidents that may cause an individual(s) serious bodily harm or death.


The Occupational Health and Safety Acts and Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Regulations, should be consistently reviewed and enforced in every work place environment. Educating and understanding these regulations is everyone’s responsibility in order to keep a safe work place environment.


Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) has contributed to a safer work place environment. Health and safety has become a high priority in the workplace due to increased awareness of dangers and the identifications of hazardous materials.


Practicing health and safety is a tremendous contribution to a safe and accident free work place environment.
