The Foley name initially was known as a leader in the early years of automobile dealerships in Newark, but an intriguing business opportunity presented to Edward Foley, Jr. in 1957 to become a Cat® tractor dealer, changed the direction of Foley’s future.
After ten years of solid growth, Foley Machinery moved to Piscataway, NJ in January 1967 to a larger facility. This remains Foley’s headquarters today where all four divisions operate. The company has spanned three generations of the Foley Family.
Today Jamie Foley is CEO, Ryan Foley is President, and Kim Foley is Chairman of the Board of Foley, Inc., and Marine Corps 1967-1971. Our vision is to “Create customer experiences that create customers for life,” and we believe in and strive to achieve our vision by adhering to our company values of trust, communication, relationships, mutual respect, and astonishment, every day.
There are four divisions that provide a diversified line of products, rentals and services to support our wide range of customer needs. The Machinery Division offers the full line of Cat Construction Products, consisting of over 300 machines. Foley Rents offers short term rentals, long term rentals and rent-to-own agreements. Power Systems provides emergency and prime power generator sets, power generation rentals, temperature control rentals, compressed air rentals, marine engines, and industrial engines. The On Highway Division’s capabilities includes services from basic oil changes to major overhauls, and our factory-trained technicians provide expert and reliable service whether it is for Cat or non-Cat truck engines. Foley offers product support capabilities for every division which includes all service and parts availability for all product types.

In addition to the Piscataway location, there are 10 parts-drops throughout New Jersey including Monroe Township, Wall, Clifton, Pompton Lakes, Flanders, Glen Gardner, Fairview, Flemington, Neptune and on Staten Island.
