Connecting You to More

We are a group of non-standard issue men and women conducting serious business with a smile.

The Paige story originally began in Newark, NJ and is an embodiment of leadership done right. The Paige founding partners and a team of experts led the company from humble beginnings—when sales were booked by phone and drop-shipped all over the country—to an industry leader with more than 200 employees.

Our expert team is celebrated for impeccable customer service and a track record of proven success. For more than 60 years, Paige has been shaped by its employees who continue to grow the legacy.

Our History & The People Who Built Us

1958

It was meant to be. Neil Weiss, Herb Levine, and Jermone Stern (our founding partners) opened Paige for business in 1958. Order number one was booked on business day one. The initial corporate capitalization was only $7,500. By the end of the year, the office staff expanded 300%, and salesforce grew by 50%. Reynolds Electric & Engineering was our largest (and only) client. They were solely responsible for our cross-country sales.

1968

Growing up and going public. After ten years, the business was growing and so were its needs. Lou Grotta joined the team as a partner. Shortly thereafter, the team of four partners took the company public. Herb Levine helped lead Paige's new merger with Brennand Construction Company.

1983

The road to success is paved with leadership. Before becoming 100% employee-owned, Paige was sold to Thackeray Corporation for $18 million. Thackeray was a highly successful New York investment group. They helped guide Paige during their decade of leadership.

1996

In 1996, for the first time in history Paige became a company that was 100% employee-owned. Paige expanded outwards from New Jersey, opening a new 36,000 square-foot warehouse near Columbus, Ohio.

2008

The golden year. In 2008, Paige celebrated its 50th anniversary. The company had come a long way since 1958, from three stockholders, six employees, one office, a 257sq. ft. warehouse, capitalization of $7,500, a thousand dollars worth of inventory, one major supplier, one customer, and no computers. Now, they had over 160 people in 13 all-over-the-place locations, five warehouses, and multi-million dollar revenue.

2016

Passing the baton. With our feet proudly rooted in our history and an eye on the future, the Paige Board of Directors tapped Jim Coleman to join Paige as its new CEO. The Coleman family has enjoyed a long and successful history in the wire business going back four generations and having founded major companies, including Coleman Cable and Genesis Cable Systems.

2018

Growth through innovation. Lead by the new management team and focused on growth, Paige expands its manufacturing footprint by opening a 33,000 square foot factory in Silao, Mexico. With the new factory came new capabilities and new employees. After 20 employees in Silao joining Paige, our employee family passed 200.

2019

Evolution of Connection. In early 2019, Paige Electric added on a new, innovative technological arm called Paige Wireless. This signified the company's first move into "wireless" connectivity. Forged by agility, industry leadership, and a vision for the future, Paige Wireless is the next evolution of Paige, bringing wireless connectivity to the world's leading wire manufacturer and supplier. Together, we are connecting our customers to more.

Zero-Waste Packaging

Paige has developed a new packaginga fully recyclable, zero-waste cardboard boxdesigned to reduce environmental waste. This solution has saved 3,000,000 lbs of waste from heading to a landfill and 10,000 trees from being cut down.

Eliminating PVC from Products

Paige has moved to low-smoke, zero halogen (LSZH) construction of cable to replace plastic compound PVC, typically used for the production of wire and cable. This eliminates a ton of chlorine that enters into the environment during production.

Smart Cardboard Design

Our team has come up with a smart cardboard box design that has reduced the amount of cardboard needed to produce our boxes by 30%. We are all about less waste and more efficiencies.
