Palmero Health Care
A Family Business - A Family Story
Palmero Health Care has been a player in the dental industry since 1931 when Joe Palmero became one of the industry’s first independent manufacturer’s representatives. Inspired to use color coding, Joe soon became known to most of the distributors east of the Mississippi, as much for his dynamic personality as for the products he sold. Eventually Joe Palmero stopped repping other company’s products and developed his own product line centering around unique and inventive items. That innovative legacy continues with the company’s current president, Joe’s son, Ken Palmero who has directed the company into an infection control-based enterprise.
Ken has built the Palmero Health Care name by being a resource for information on surface disinfectants and barriers. He built and acquired a great product line by creating the best product he possibly could – products with the absolute best chemistry/ delivery system available for their application.
Mr. Palmero has re-organized the company’s production facility, updating everything from pallet racks and product identification systems, new production/accounting software, and new customer service to computer/phone systems, incorporating the most advanced procedures in the industry. Palmero Health Care has added 40,000 square feet of warehouse space and reorganized the entire production facility. The company has also moved forward to become ISO 9001:1994 certified and later ISO 9001:2008 certified. These are all examples of Palmero’s commitment to constantly providing quality products and services to our business partners.
Palmero Health Care is a paradigm of the small mom & pop business with its roots in the dental and health care industry. The company is proud to have been named by its customers as the most supportive manufacturer in the industry.
