Bill Majetich | Cometic Gasket Engineering Manager

Majetich has been an integral part of the Cometic Gasket family for the past 13 years as part of the leadership and product innovation team. Cometic Gasket is a worldwide leader of gasket and engine sealing solutions for the automotive performance, powersports, original equipment, stationary power and re-manufactured engine industries.

Majetich is responsible for new product design including; form tooling and rubber injection 3D mold design for over 10,000 products. Roush Yates Engines relies on his expertise to design and develop championship-winning gaskets for the Ford FR9 EFI and Ford FR9 Carb engines, the exclusive NASCAR engines of Ford Performance.

When asked what his favorite aspect of his job was, Majetich responded, “I’ve always loved to create, design and solve problems. So I guess you can say Engineering has always been in my blood.”

“Cometic was growing at a record pace,” said Bob Gorman, Founder & CEO of Cometic Gasket. “I knew Bill’s passion for motorsports and unparalleled work ethic would be a perfect fit to help Cometic maintain its position at the leading edge of gasket technology. Bill’s role is more important today than ever. He is an important asset and a key contributor to the growth and success of Cometic Gasket.”

Majetich’s love of racing started with motocross in his teens. Growing up in Northeastern Ohio, he sustains his fix for racing during the winter months with snowmobile ice oval racing and in the summer with grass drags.

The entire Majetich family are race fans. One of their favorite race memories is from 2016. Being present at the Michigan International Speedway to see the No. 22 Joey Logano of Team Penske win the Michigan 400 and Roush Yates Engines achieve their 100th win with Ford Performance.

Majetich is looking forward to the 2017 season. He is very excited to see Stewart-Haas Racing join Ford Performance and one of his favorite drivers, Clint Bowyer driving the No. 14 car.  His long-time favorite NASCAR Cup driver is Davey Allison.
