NIIGON MACHINES was founded in 2008 under the original name of Athena Automation Ltd by Canadian plastics pioneer and industrialist, Robert Schad. Previously, Mr. Schad had founded Husky Injection Molding Systems in 1953. 'Athena' changed its name to 'NIIGON' which translates from indigenous Ojibwa meaning 'for the future'. Said Schad in 2018, the new name "aligns us to emphasize the business objective of becoming a global leader in customized injection molding machines". Most recently, NIIGON has used its machines to produce the Health Canada approved 'Shield-U' protective face shields during the pandemic.
