Palmer Fixture Celebrates 110 Years

Palmer Fixture, Green Bay, Wisconsin, is celebrating 110 years of providing the most competitive, value-added dispensing systems available. Palmer Fixture offers a variety of towel, tissue and soap dispensers, as well as hand dryers, to the away-from- home market.

John Frederick Palmer founded the Palmer Company in 1907 in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Mr. Palmer was an avid inventor and held several patents, including his first patent in 1915 for a “roll paper holder” that dispensed one tissue at a time to avoid waste. Palmer Fixture also patented the first “globe” style soap dispenser in 1928 and one of the first power actuated soap dispensers in 1939.

Setting the foundation for innovation in the early days of the company, Palmer Fixture continues to focus on research and development to provide the most cutting-edge restroom solutions to its customers. The company has built a long-standing reputation in the industry for product excellence and distributes tens of thousands of dispensers annually across the United States, Latin America, Europe and Asia.

Palmer Fixture relocated to Green Bay, Wisconsin in 2004. In 2012, Palmer combined operations with Alwin Manufacturing and Deluxe Plastics to maximize design and manufacturing capabilities. The recent addition of a manufacturing facility in Vietnam further expanded global service levels.
