About Gary Palmer

Gary Palmer started his career in sales working for a local distributor in the electrical utility market. Promoted to National Sales Manager after 2 years, and then Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Huskie Tools, Inc. in Glendale Heights, Illinois, he developed their national Independent Representative program calling on distributors in the electrical utility industry. Ten years later, he started up a small manufacturing company called SureGround, developing highly specialized grounding clamps for the electrical industry. Due to the deregulation of the power industry by the federal government, the big utilities were not available to test the new style clamps leaving their futures unsettled. Four years later, as Sales Manager with Everede Tool Co., Gary worked with reps and distributors in the metal cutting industry for 13 years. Forging ahead with ongoing passion for this industry, Palmer Industrial Source, LLC was formed in 2013.
