CAMBRIDGE, Ont. — Eclipse Automation has added a new location in the Greater Phoenix Area of Arizona to support its rapidly growing international business.
Eclipse Arizona is the Cambridge, Ont. automation company’s third US location, joining plants in Fremont, Calif. and Charlotte, NC. The company said it will be hiring more than 50 automation engineers and technicians over the next few years.
“Arizona is a strategic location in our growth strategy to further support our customers throughout the southwest market,” said Steve Mai, president and CEO of Eclipse Automation, in a statement. “The state of Arizona has proven to be investing in manufacturing and we feel it is a perfect location for us to continue to meet our goals as a company.”
This expansion follows the announcement of a new $6 million facility in Cambridge that will be used primarily for equipment staging and assembly.
The company currently employs about 320 people in Cambridge and 60 in the US. The Waterloo Region Record reported another 100 are expected to be hired next year.
