“Our company was severely impacted by the economic downturn which crippled the automotive industry. This industry by far makes up the majority of our customer base. In 2011, new business opportunities developed quickly due to an automotive material shift from steel to aluminum. We needed to react quickly to meet the demands of our customer base. This new and growing demand relied on the rapid R & D of technology which we did not have. We immediately called Palmer and worked together on the development of this new technology which is currently Patent Pending. As a result of Palmer’s responsiveness, machine design engineering, and testing capabilities, we became an industry leader, which enabled our customer to be first to market utilizing our newly developed technology. We are pleased to work so closely with such a professional and technically excellent company.”
