Our History

Since 1965, Palmer Construction Group has been serving Sault Ste. Marie and surrounding Algoma District with quality performance and leadership in the construction industry. Founded by Curt Damignani and Wilf Palmer in April of 1965, the company was originally known as Palmer Paving & Construction.
In the early years, Palmer concentrated on residential and small commercial grading and paving projects and began to grow the company, building on its solid foundations and reputation for quality and service.
Branching out into sewer and water main construction, Palmer began tackling larger projects including the reconstruction of streets within the City of Sault Ste. Marie. To reflect the new focus and growth of the company, the name was changed from Palmer Paving and Construction to Palmer Construction Group.
In 2001, Palmer became a builder/dealer for Butler Manufacturing and has utilized Butler buildings in many of its construction projects from offices, to maintenance shops to self-storage projects to airport hangar buildings. In 2003 Palmer purchased its own Asphalt Plant, a new plant built by the ADM Company in Fort Wayne Indiana. This added significantly to Palmer’s abilities to bring quality construction products into the market.


Palmer Construction Group is dedicated to giving back to the community that has contributed to our growth and success over the last five decades. We are committed to supporting organizations that improve the quality of life for the members of our community.

The Palmer team is proud to partner with these organizations over the years:
