Greg Williams

Greg Williams’ family has a 100-year history of involvement in two industries: construction and agriculture. So becoming an agricultural engineer was a natural choice for Williams, the president and founder of Facility Engineering Services, PA. The Arkansas-based company focuses on designing industrial processing facilities for the food, biofuel and agricultural industries. A practicing engineer, Williams has designed many facilities including feed mills, grain elevators, malting plants, meat and poultry plants, and other food and agricultural processing facilities. He takes pride in having founded his own business. “Being a business owner is much like running a dairy farm,” he says. “It’s a seven-day-a-week job.” He remains in close contact with the Biological Systems Engineering department and serves on American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers committees.
