About Foley Engines

A Strong Heritage at Foley Engines

Founded in 1916, Foley Engines is a leading distributor of industrial engines, parts, and powertrain components. Operating from a 20,000 square foot facility in Worcester, Massachusetts, Foley ensures swift delivery of quality equipment at discounted pricing. With a highly trained and experienced staff of engine professionals, the Foley team is committed to providing flexible solutions to its valued customers. We are customer focused. 

At Foley, we understand the critical role our products play in keeping your business running smoothly, and we are committed to being the solution you can count on every day to get the job done. Foley has grown by focusing on the needs of our customers and by offering more effective solutions. In short, we want to have a relationship with our customers – a quality, long lasting relationship.

To build these relationships, we are committed to the values that have made us successful since 1916. These include having knowledgeable people giving good customer service backed up by huge inventories and discount pricing with quick shipping. In short, giving good value.

Building on Strength for the Future

As part of our commitment to our customers, we are focused on reinvesting in our business and staying current with new products and opportunities to serve our customers’ needs. We take the long view and prepare for the future to make sure we are always ready to help you. Our goal is to be your preferred engine and parts source by providing personal assistance and the products you need quickly and at attractive prices so you can focus on the work you need to do.

More than just being your preferred vendor, we want to do this in a way that supports our team of employees and communities we live and work in.  We are more than just parts and engines, we are a team of people who care.  

Knowledgeable People

One of the ways that we add value is by hiring and training people to provide the knowledge and tips you need to come up with the best solutions to your engine problems. Our team of engine professionals has decades of engine industry experience. 

We have the technical and product knowledge that you won’t find in a local parts store. As recognized industry experts, the Foley team is interviewed regularly by trade journals (such as Engine Professional, Construction Equipment Guide and Maine Coastal News) and regularly appear on national panels and forums.

Our industry expertise is our strongest competitive advantage and it is a major benefit to our customers. 

Learning From You

To learn more about our customer’s businesses and how we can help, we actively participate in a variety of trade associations. These include:

  • The National Association of Ski Areas
  • Maine Lobsterman’s Association
  • Empire State Water Well Drillers Association
  • New England Fleet Maintenance
  • Women in Maine Construction
  • Northeast Cranberry Growers Association
  • Maintenance Association of the Granite State
  • Central Mass. Highway Superintendents
  • Connecticut Highway Superintendents Association
  • Maine Aggregate Association
  • New York State County Highway Superintendents Association
  • and many more

We learn a lot from just listening. For example, when we learned that the manufacturer of belt drive governors was going out of business we sourced a universal belt drive governor. For people running gen sets we’ve developed an electronic governor package to replace their obsolete belt drives.

When we learned from our overhaul kit customers that Deutz engines were great engines but complicated to rebuild, we swung into action. We bought a truckload of engine cores and developed a remanufactured exchange program. Now we can offer Deutz owners two options: complete overhaul parts kits and exchange engines.

Finally, New England tree service companies were finding it difficult to purchase power takeoff clutches and clutch parts. So we became the authorized WPT Power distributor and now stock over 200 PTOs.

At Foley, we’re committed to supplying exceptional products and maintaining standards of quality, service, and customer satisfaction. We’re fully committed to bringing even more products, value, and service to our customers, partners, and suppliers.
