About 3-D Meats
3-D Meats is a family owned company that began in 2014. Leon & Jan Hilty are owners and operators. Dana, their oldest son, along with grandson Colby also work at 3-D.
Leon has worked in the meat industry for over 40 years, most recently as the long-time manager at Tucker Packing in Orrville. Over the years, the Tucker facility became increasingly interwoven into the growing Smucker’s campus. Ultimately in 2014, Tucker Packing was purchased by Smucker's to facilitate further property development. With decades of experience coupled with hundreds of customer relationships, Leon knew the Wayne County area still needed a quality meat harvester to assist with custom processing. After much contemplation, 3-D Meats became a reality.
The basis of the name “3-D” originates from three factors: Leon & Jan’s children were all given names beginning with “D”, meat is 3 dimensional, and “Dalton is a Delicious Destination” for meat. The name fit and the company has quickly gained recognition as a leader in the industry.
3-D Meats provides harvesting & processing of beef, swine, goats, lamb, and bison for local farmers. The company employs approximately 15-20 full and part time associates.
The next time you travel US-30 just west of Dalton, keep a watchful eye for the opening of the 3-D retail store, expected in Spring, 2017! Better yet, stop by and take a look at our hand-painted mural that depicts the essence of what 3-D Meats is all about.
