About Us

Servicing Northland since 1963

Palmer Canvas was established in Whangarei in 1963 by founder Ray Palmer as a one-stop canvas shop to service the Northland region. Offering reliable and quality bespoke products the company quickly grew to become the trusted canvas fabricator for many different applications and industries.

55 years later Palmer Canvas continues to service the north and has broadened its reach across New Zealand and the world with our network of divisions putting us at the cutting edge of fabric design and technology.

In August 2015 Palmer Canvas was purchased by Fabric Structures Limited, a company owned 50/50 by James Mizen and Structurflex Limited. Palmer Canvas now operates as a division of Fabric Structures Limited and has access to the resource and knowledge of the Fabric Structures division and also the Structurflex Group, a Group with operations in Auckland, Tauranga, Malaysia and USA.
