A Complete Manufacturing Partner
We’re a full-service metal manufacturing company with specialized experience and equipment backed by a can-do spirit. PBZ can partner with you for project, OEM, job shop and contract manufacturing services at any — and every — process stage. We’ve been putting our resources to work for industries across the spectrum, from metal furniture manufacturing to agricultural equipment.
From Form To Finish
Manufactured solutions begin as concepts, and take clear vision and methodology to successfully execute.
Develop a Manufacturing Strategy
PBZ works with you from the very beginning to develop a coordinated manufacturing strategy based on open dialogue and clear communication.
“Form” can refer to everything from your basic concept to your tried-and-true product. No matter where you are in that continuum, we’ll take your CAD drawing and prepare it for manufacturing through the use of various computer modeling technologies (both 2D and 3D) applied by our team of experienced draftsmen.

We work diligently to ensure every project maintains a steady, productive pace from beginning to end.
Assembly & Delivery
If your project requires a finished surface, PBZ offers exceptional powder coating through a close collaboration with Keystone Koating. PBZ manufacturing and Keystone Koating are part of the Paul B. Zimmerman, Inc. family of companies. Keystone Koating provides superior powder coating services that include surface preparation, pre-treatment using alkaline cleaner and iron phosphate, automatic conveyor lines for large runs and spray booths for small batch runs.
Whether or not you’d like powder coating, we can assemble your product and securely package it for delivery. We complete your optimized supply chain with affordable, convenient shipping practices, as we use our network of trucks to transport your product to your facility safely, or even directly to your customer or job site.
The same resourcefulness that our founder, Paul B. Zimmerman, brought to fixing equipment for his Lancaster County neighbors starting in 1947 is in the DNA of PBZ today. We have the engineers, equipment and ingenuity to do your job right. We take the time to listen and understand your project needs before we offer a comprehensive solution.
Starting as a modest 40 x 60 repair shop in 1947, the Paul B. Zimmerman, Inc. family of companies has steadily grown and now includes PaulB LLC, PBZ LLC and Keystone Koating LLC.
From our home base in Lititz PA, we now serve homeowners, industrial, commercial and agricultural customers around the world.
By 1963, Paul’s business had grown into a multi-generational, family affair and by 1965 he was ready to expand the fabrication and repair sides of his enterprise.
At the crack of dawn, January 1, 1978, Paul Sr. signed papers with 33-year-old Marvin, 27-year-old Paul Jr., 26-year-old Ernie, and 21-year-old Nelson, creating a business entity titled, “Paul B. Zimmerman, Inc.”
In 1985 the Zimmermans set out on their biggest financial investment to that point. Nelson, a self-described “innovator” took on the task of researching alternatives to the wet paint process they were using for their line of cattle equipment. His research soon led him to a relatively new dry-painting process known as powder coating.
Keystone Koating, as it was officially named, went on-line in the summer of 1986.
As the family of companies continues to grow, now employing nearly 300 people across four businesses, the unspoken philosophy that founder Paul Sr. successfully modeled for over four decades continues to drive successive generations that now hold the torch.
