Paul's Shop

Paul B. Zimmerman

Paul B. Zimmerman opened up his small 40' x 60' farm repair shop in 1947. His reputation quickly grew and he expanded his shop several times in the ´50s and ´60s. His welding and repair shop also became a parts store; as he bought his parts in bulk, farming neighbors began stopping by his more conveniently located shop to purchase items.

His six sons grew and took increasingly larger roles in the business; the parts area expanded to a separate hardware store that eventually moved a mile down the road and became PaulB LLC. In 1986 a new powder coating plant was built to coat the steel agricultural machinery they were fabricating, and that became Keystone Koating LLC.

The "shop," as it is still known, grew into PBZ LLC, a full-fledged metal manufacturing company...

The "shop," as it is still known, grew into PBZ LLC, a full-fledged metal manufacturing company that specializes in OEM, job shop, and contract manufacturing. PBZ LLC uses modern machinery, including structural 3D and flat bed laser cutting, bending, MIG & TIG welding, robotic welding, and powder coating. Thus, PBZ LLC provides full service for all your manufacturing needs - from individual component parts to complete assemblies ready to ship to your customers.

Paul died in 2006; today his six sons and increasing numbers of grandchildren and now great-grandchildren, and other key employees, help lead the various companies. PBZ LLC, Keystone Koating, and PaulB LLC are part of the Paul B. Zimmerman, Inc. family of companies. For more information visit PBZinc.com
