Details for Our History - 1979

In 1979, the Palmer Candy Company purchased a bottling plant from the Chesterman Company which was gutted and rebuilt as a candy plant, big enough to last for the foreseeable future.  The president at that time, Bill Palmer, used his engineering background to automate the production processes by using gravity and piping to move chocolate and materials throughout the building.  Much of his innovative design is still used today!
