CEO Message

Tariq CEO PicWelcome to Palmer Associates. I would encourage you to explore our website and see our capabilities. Palmer Associates has been located in Toledo area since 1945. The company was started as Delos M. Palmer & Associates by the dean of the school of engineering of the University of Toledo. Our long tradition of innovation and proven track record has allowed us to perform complex machine design, engineering analysis, and testing.

Fundamentals of engineering is a true strength of our company. We believe engineering is the heart of innovation. Innovation is key for creating value for all stake holders and across many industries like Metal, Plastic, Glass, and Paper. In addition to providing technical services, we pride ourselves in providing excellent customer service. It requires total commitment from Palmer to resolve customer’s issues. As a result, some of the relationships with our clients have lasted for over 50 years.

Traditionally, Palmer has been viewed as an “Engineering consulting and machine design” company. It is true that we are strong in engineering fundamentals. However, we also provide custom design and build products across multiple industries as well project management for the entire project.

 

Tariq M. Alkhairy

CEO and Managing Partner

“In the Global Product Innovation group at O-I, we commissioned Palmer Associates to develop a test instrument that would allow us to quantify product innovation. The team at Palmer worked with us to define a scope and list of critical deliverables that would meet the needs of the project, but we had a hardware/software prerequisite we wanted to incorporate into the instrument. Palmer had no previous experience with our choice of HW/SW, but embraced the challenge. Marv and his team at Palmer were creative and persistent through the invention and concept phase; swift and efficient through the execution phase and comprehensive through the validation phase. The project is now complete, patents are pending and customers of O-I are engaged with this new capability thanks, in large part, to the team at Palmer.”
