“Normalize Sending Kids To Tradeschools After Highschool Without Making Them Feel Like Its Less Than a 4 Year College Degree”

Most of us have seen this message floating around over the past few months. And … along with Palmer Tool, you probably agree this is an excellent and timely message. Palmer Tool is a proud partner with our local Tennessee College of Applied Technology campuses to employ current TCAT students as Welders or Machinists through a Co-operative Education program. Co-op students earn money AND gain work experience while working toward a two-year degree in Welding or Machine Tool Technology. An added benefit … Palmer co-ops typically enjoy the peace of mind of knowing they have a full-time job waiting when they graduate.

The specialized nature of Palmer’s work, combined with our customers’ demanding applications (high temp + high pressure + high corrosion + high abrasion), demand a skilled touch honed through years of training and experience. Palmer’s experienced Welders and Machinists enjoy teaching the next generation the skills of their trade.

About Palmer Tool

Palmer Tool completes critical jobs on-time and on-budget. Since 1966, Palmer has taken on jobs that other shops and contractors either didn’t want, or just couldn’t do. We can fabricate parts in our shops, visit you at your plant, or meet you at on-location (ie. logging, mining, construction, etc.). From the toughest repairs to the most complex new assembly, we’ve seen and done it all. Over the past 50+ years, Palmer has maintained our reputation as a trusted expert welder and fabricator of non-ferrous alloys in demanding applications (high pressure + high temperature chemical plants). Our hard-facing applications, and robust designs, have successfully extended the service life of countless industrial “extreme service” components, saving our clients’ money! Palmer Tool and Contractors provide on-call emergency services 24/7, because we understand that in manufacturing “the clock never stops”.
