Eclipse Automation, a provider of automated systems for a variety of industries, announced plans to locate new operations in York County. The company’s $4.6 million investment is projected to create 90 new jobs over the next five years.
Eclipse Automation is a leading supplier of custom automated manufacturing equipment for the life sciences, energy, transportation, mining, and telecommunications industries. With locations in Canada and the United States, Eclipse Automation delivers state-of-the-art solutions through automation technology and project experience. For 2018, the organization ranked No. 206 on the Growth 500 list of Canada’s fastest-growing companies by Canada Business magazine, and for the fourth consecutive year was named as one of Canada’s Best-Managed Companies for overall business performance by Deloitte’s Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
Located at 1510 Cedar Line Drive in Rock Hill, S.C., the company’s newly-renovated, 57,000-square-foot facility is projected to come online in March 2019.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has awarded a $150,000 Set Aside grant to York County to assist with costs associated with the project.
“The Rock Hill facility is the perfect location to support our long-term growth plan and ongoing commitment to our customers,” said Steve Mai, Eclipse Automation president and CEO. “Eclipse is focused on delivering innovative automated solutions worldwide, and we believe that South Carolina has an impressive reputation in quality manufacturing and developing skilled resources. Both will provide a solid foundation for success at our new location.”
