PALME’S HISTORY

THE PATH OF WATER.

How shower cubicles became shower oases: the pioneering spirit from the time that PALME was founded lives on in our company today and is combined with our passion for beautiful design, our meticulous approach and our tireless pursuit of maximum showering comfort.

A pioneering spirit and the ability to make the most of synergies were characteristics that the grandparents of the current owner clearly possessed.
