Harold Luttmann has taken over as acting CEO, in addition to his current role of Chief Operations Officer.

Athena Automation Ltd., the Vaughan, Ontario-based company founded by Robert Schad (founder and former majority owner of Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd.), announced that it has made organizational changes. Harold Luttmann has taken over as acting CEO, in addition to his current role of Chief Operations Officer. A Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) will be added to the management team shortly. Founder Robert Schad has temporarily assumed this responsibility. The CCO will be responsible for sales, marketing, finance and human resources, as well as for growing the global sales and service network. A service representative is already stationed in the Pennsylvania- Ohio area, with Atlanta, Chicago and Frankfurt, Germany to follow.

In 2014, Athena opened a new 155,000-square-foot facility in Vaughan. This facility allows Athena to compete on a global basis, due to automotive-style just-in-time assembly of machines.
