Founded in 1911 by the Startzman family, Philadelphia Metal (PM) Craftsman produced casket hardware using permanent bronze mold slush-metal castings. Beginning in the 1950s, the company began producing a line of slush-metal cast bookends using molds of their own design as well as molds acquired from Jennings Brothers as well as the K & O Company.

During the 1970s, the company moved from Philadelphia to its present location in Lakeland, Florida where it still produces a line of quality bookends under the same name, PM Craftsman. Company President Linda Startzman Schofield represents the third generation of the Startzmans to run the firm.
