The business was very lucky to acquire Jeff from Trump's when we purchased their facility in January of 2012. After working for them, and in the sheet metal manufacturing industry for over 28 years, he is a welcome addition to Walt Palmer Supply. Jeff works primarily in shop manufacturing but utilizes his industry knowledge by also assisting in outside sales. He spends his time outside of the shop with his wife, children, and new grandchildren, pursuing his passion as an avid hunter whenever he can find the time.
Brighton came to work with us in April of 2018, and has quickly became one of us. He provides us with the missing link we have needed for quite some time. We are happy and proud to have him working with us.

"Un-official" Company Family
Walt N. Palmer
Walt is the oldest son and has been working here since the early 60's. He graduated Granite High School, and attended Salt Lake Community College, obtaining a degree in drafting. Upon completion of his formal education, Walt decided to stay with Walt Palmer Supply, Inc. applying all that he learned to the business he helped build. Walt has since retired (2015), but when he isn't visiting Disneyland with his family, he tends to the shop to support the family business.
Chief Coffee Tester
A longtime family friend to the entire Palmer clan, who spends each morning with the employees to enjoy a cup of coffee together. Though he doesn't work here, he is definitely a part of the company family.
Jody also started working here around the age of 14 and began his full-time employment after graduating high school in 1978. After many loyal years to his family's company, he decided to pursue a lifelong dream of being a rancher in Lava Hot Springs, Idaho. There he manages the Alpaca Inn with his wife Londa, and spirited alpacas.
