In Office

Beckey Durfee 窶 President

Having had on and off employment with our company since 1981, we were thrilled when Beckey permanently returned to JPCI Services in 2001 to help with the tremendous growth we were taking on at the time. She was able to streamline our payroll and billing department along with other areas of our internal management. Having a background in Architecture and Industrial Arts, her high level of detail orientation and gift for computer programming lead her to take on more work drafting proposals, estimating projects, advanced data entry, and eventually became a full time Job Controller. She now resides as our acting President.

The success of our reputation within the industry has largely come in part to Beckey窶冱 exceptional ability to negotiate contracts with the different customers and cities we service. Over the years, we have relied on her to facilitate all our insurance needs and bonding negotiations. Beckey regularly attends job meetings and oversees company moral.

Board Members

Joseph A. Nuciforo Sr. and Lois Susanne Nuciforo 窶 Founders, CEOs, and Consultants

Joe and Sue Nuciforo founded Joseph Painting Company Inc. in 1972 as a residential and commercial painting company in California, which included work on hospitals, schools, and IHS Projects. A few years later, they moved their family and operations to Arizona in 1979 and expanded into the industrial and municipal coating markets. They immediately recognized there was a high need for quality coatings in the Greater Phoenix Valley that could be applied in its extremely hot and dry climate. They were able to observe that Arizona’s typical industry coating failures stemmed from poor preparation practices and made it the focus and foundation of their quality driven techniques, which led to the success and longevity of their excellent work.

Joe and Sue窶冱 executive leadership and commitment to integrity have helped them develop and maintain the outstanding reputation JPCI Services has as an industry leader. They later went on to develop the successful product lines for Environmental Coatings LLC and Sewer Shield Composites LLC. Today they remain active as consultants to family, employees, many cities, and engineers.
