Resourceful: We're able to deal skillfully and promptly with new situations and challenges.

Contract Manufacturing Services

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.

Our Pennsylvania-based contract manufacturing services will meet or exceed your requirements at every point in the manufacturing process. Our range of capabilities includes various welding applications, tube laser cutting, and optimized logistics, giving you one-stop flexibility from individual component parts to complete assemblies ready to ship.

Put our resourcefulness to work for you. Experience the benefits of full-service capability, including reduced project completion times, a streamlined supply chain, and less material handling and logistics. It all adds up to lower costs.

From Form

Formation: 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.

To bring your project to reality, our fabricators, welders, and other staff members use a variety of tools, including laser cutters and press brakes, to get the job done to your satisfaction.

To Finish

Finish: 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.
