Palmer Wahl

America's first thermometer company originated in Cincinnati, OH in 1836. Since that time, Palmer Instruments has steadily evolved through product development geared exclusively towards industrial supply and process measurement.

From development of the "Foster Cup" thermometer in 1880, through the radical improvement of thermometer legibility by the patented "Red Reading Mercury" tube in 1929, to today's temperature and pressure measurement innovations, Palmer has always maintained the "first" tradition by bringing instrument value, service and quality to a broad range of industries.

What began as a small instrument shop in 1836, developed into an enterprise of international reputation during the 1940’s and 1950’s, and continues to evolve into the 21st century. Virtually every industry relies on temperature measurement in the production of quality products. The company’s customers know they can rely on the accuracy of Palmer temperature instruments for their processes. From bimetal, mercury, liquid, and temperature labels; to thermocouples, RTD’s, infrared, digital meters, and thermal imaging - since the beginning they have proven their commitment to constant progress in the development and manufacture of the highest quality temperature instrumentation.

Operating from a new facility in Asheville, NC since 1987, Palmer has developed special-application products such as Dual-Sensing and "Slip-fit" thermometers, and pioneered new industry services such as free lifetime recalibration on pressure gauges. With the recent affiliation with Wahl Instruments, and resulting consolidation of manufacturing in Asheville, Palmer Instruments looks first to the future.
