After graduating from the University of Wisconsin with a B.S. in chemical engineering, Bill became a product development engineer for Procter & Gamble in 1985. There, he patented and developed a new disposable diaper that remains the state-of-the-art in diaper designs today. He later moved into his stepfather’s business, George Meyer Company, where he deepened his expertise in food processing. Recognizing a need by many companies in the food industry for a trusted and capable contract manufacturing partner, Bill soon evolved the company to meet this need.
In 1992, he leased a 50,000 square-foot facility in Chicago and opened PacMoore Products, Inc. as a majority shareholder. In just one year, the young company outgrew its space and relocated to Hammond, Indiana, which is where the 200,000 square foot company headquarters is located today. In 2006, PacMoore built a new 110,000 square-foot plant in Mooresville, Indiana, outside of Indianapolis.
