Employee Ownership

Palmer-Donavin became an employee-owned company in 2007. As a result, every employee has a personal financial stake in the overall success of the company, fostering a collaborative, family mentality. The camaraderie is clear at any branch of the company and fuels the decisions made. Furthermore, when hiring, we look for people who will complement our culture and become part of the family here in a long-term way. Being an ESOP stretches far beyond financial elements; it truly shapes the culture and relationships at Palmer-Donavin.
