Oakville, Ontario—Antoine Dodier has been appointed country manager of Loma Systems Canada, an ITW company and worldwide leader in metal detection, checkweighing and X-Ray inspection systems for the food, pharmaceutical and packaging industries.

Business unit manager Mark D’Onofrio says the appointment of Antoine Dodier is an important milestone for Loma Systems Canada. “Antoine reinforces the strength of our presence in Canada and I am confident he will be a catalyst who will steer the company as it enters the next chapter of expanded innovation and growth.

“Antoine comes with outstanding credentials. He brings an exemplary commitment to the customer with complementary experience building best-in-class sales and service centers worldwide.”
Since joining the company in 2003, Dodier has spearheaded entry into several markets worldwide, most notably the company’s push into Latin America and the development of one of the most substantial networks supporting the region.

During his tenure overseeing the Latin American business, the division outperformed the market and took notable share from competitors.

“Loma Systems will revolutionize the Canadian market through technology and services and I couldn’t be more honored to have been chosen to lead this initiative,” Dodier states. “The opportunity ahead for Loma Systems Canada is vast, but to seize it, we must focus clearly, move fast and continue to transform. A big part of my job is to accelerate our ability to bring innovative products to our customers and to directly support those products.”

Loma Systems Canada has seen a recent push in X-Ray inspection, checkweighing and combination systems, which are technologies that are foreign to many competitors in the market. Loma Systems Canada also maintains the largest field service team in Canada that boasts a 92 per cent customer satisfaction score as monitored by NPS, a third-party evaluation service, contracted by Loma Systems North America for more than 10 years.

Founded in 1980, Loma Systems Canada is nationally recognized as an expert in food safety. Its systems continuously protect some of the top brands in Canada, credited to support provided by a local team of experienced field service engineers with an average tenure of over 15 years.
