Garfield, New Jersey

When the area that is now Garfield was first developed in 1873, it was known as East Passaic. In 1881, the community’s name was changed to Garfield in honor of President of the United States James Garfield. According to one, shortly after Garfield was elected to the presidency the founder of East Passaic said, “tell everyone…don’t speak of East Passaic anymore; call it ‘Garfield’ after the man who will lead this great country to prosperity

Garfield was originally incorporated as a borough on March 15, 1898, from portions of Saddle River Township and Wallington. At the time, the New Jersey Legislature set Garfield’s boundaries as they exist today. On April 19, 1917, the borough became the City of Garfield, based on the results of a referendum held two days earlier.

Primex was founded in 1965 with the objective of becoming the leader in the custom sheet extrusion industry. Our first plant in Englewood, N.J., housed three machines. We have grown steadily to our current size of six manufacturing plants and over 100 extruders.
