History

Ralph Palmer and Dick Nunan founded Palmer Engineering in February, 1969. Through their vision and leadership, the company has grown to nine offices in four states. From the beginning, their guiding principle of providing outstanding service has resulted in hundreds of clients and thousands of successful projects. Ralph and Dick retired in 2006, but their business philosophy is still embedded in the culture of Palmer Engineering.

“Palmer’s success has been – and always will be – the result of having good people, people who are problem solvers and who like the challenge of finding solutions.”
– Ralph Palmer

“The foundations of our business, honesty and integrity, will continue to be our guideposts. Treating everyone with fairness and meeting our commitments – doing what we say we’re going to do – that won’t change. It hasn’t changed for us for three decades, and it never will.”
– Dick Nunan
