A Cherokee County, Georgia native, Billy Hill literally grew up in the poultry industry.  His father, Carl J. Hill, was a pioneer in the automation of poultry processing, developing and patenting some of the earliest innovations in the burgeoning industry beginning in the 1950s.  


Billy joined the family business in 1969 heading up manufacturing.  In 1981, Billy began transforming the focus of the business from original equipment manufacturing to the production of after-market replacement parts. Before his retirement as the President and CEO of Hill Parts, Billy and his team grew to become one of the largest replacement parts manufacturers in the country.  Billy is known throughout the industry for his attention to detail, quality, ingenuity, honesty, and commitment to customer service.


Billy has now designed and produced the ProEdge Sharpener, the revolutionary new machine for efficiently and effectively returning stainless steel blades to their professional, cutting edge.  

Over 47 years of experience.

A commitment to quality.

A professional edge on customer service.
