Eclipse Automation investing in New Operations in South Carolina

An automated system provider for the life sciences industry, Eclipse Automation, will invest $4.6 million in new operations in York County expected to create 90 jobs during the next five years.

Eclipse Automation, with locations in Canada and the U.S., supplies custom automated manufacturing equipment for the life sciences, energy, transportation, mining and telecommunications industries.  

“The Rock Hill facility is the perfect location to support our long-term growth plan and ongoing commitment to our customers,” Eclipse Automation president and CEO Steve Mai said in a news release. “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.”

The renovated, 57,000-square-foot facility, located at 1510 Cedar Line Drive in Rock Hill, is projected to be operational in March.
