Many companies in the industry like to represent themselves as experts in diesel engines and generators, only for customers to discover later that they are in fact dealing with a broker who represents inventory they don’t own. At Generator Source, we are confident in the quality of our equipment because we personally inspect and test every generator we sell. To ensure the credibility of our equipment:

  • We own what we sell
  • We do not broker other dealer’s inventory
  • We do not outsource service
  • All labor is completed at our 25,000 sq. facility in America

Genuine Parts…

The old adage, “You get what you pay for.” still rings true. At Generator Source we have always believed in using genuine parts; no knockoffs. Generic parts are often unreliable as there is less knowledge about where they were manufactured and the quality behind them. We only stand behind products we personally believe in, and that’quality OEM parts.

  • We own 100% of our parts
  • We do not sell parts
  • We ONLY stock OEM parts and supplies
