May 12, 2018 – Eclipse Automation has expanded its automation and engineering development capabilities with the opening of a 26,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in west Mesa.
Headquartered in Cambridge, Ont., Eclipse Automation is a supplier of custom automated manufacturing equipment for the life sciences, energy, transportation, mining, industrial/consumer and electronics/telecommunications industries. It says it was drawn to the Mesa site due to the infrastructure in place, allowing the company to begin production at a faster rate.
“We are excited to announce that Eclipse Automation is growing again by adding our third U.S. manufacturing facility located in Mesa,” Eclipse Automation CEO and president Steve Mai said. “Eclipse continues to invest in our business and our customers, and we feel Mesa is a strategic location that supports our growth strategy, broadens our service and technology capabilities and brings us closer to our customers.”
Eclipse’s expansion into Mesa includes a capital investment of more than $1 million. It expects to hire more than 50 automation engineers and technicians over the next year for the new location.
“Automation is the future of technology and the future is now,” Mayor John Giles said. “Eclipse Automation fits perfectly into Mesa’s innovation portfolio and choosing Mesa for their newest facility in North America is a testament to what our city has to offer tech companies. Congratulations to Eclipse Automation, we wish you the best of success.”
Along with its headquarters in Cambridge, Eclipse also operates manufacturing facilities in Fremont, Calif., and Charlotte, N.C.
