The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI) is proud to celebrate the hard work of Eclipse Automation and congratulate them on the virtual grand opening of the Eclipse Automation Nuclear Facility. The new facility, located at 135 Pinebush Road in Cambridge marks the latest investment by Eclipse into the local community and into the nuclear industry to create local jobs and broaden Canada’s commitment to efficient, safe and smart nuclear technology.

Eclipse Automation’s Nuclear Division is led by a select group of highly specialized engineers and project managers with decades of experience in the nuclear sector. This expertise is combined with the Eclipse global team of more than 700 mechanical and controls system designers; and electrical, mechanical, and manufacturing technicians, who can be drawn upon to take on some of the industry’s largest and most complex challenges. Leveraging Eclipse’s 20 years of experience in other sectors, the company is disrupting the traditional thinking in nuclear projects by implementing proven commercially available robotics and other technologies to reduce time, cost and risk of system development. Eclipse excels in helping clients navigate their most time-constrained or technically complex challenges.

The virtual grand opening and video tour of the new facility office tour was widely attended by the local community leaders including MP Brian May, Minister Bill Walker, the Mayor of Cambridge, Kathryn McGarry, along with representatives from industry including Canadian Nuclear Laboratories, Ontario Power Generation and Ron Oberth, President and CEO of OCNI were also in attendance to provide congratulatory remarks.


“The opening of our Nuclear Division marks a milestone in Eclipse Automation’s evolution. We have been providing custom solutions to the nuclear industry for many years. It was time to take it one step further with an outstanding facility, and the addition of even greater depth to our team of nuclear industry veterans, who are dedicated to providing leading-edge, efficient and cost-effective systems to our customers in the nuclear sector.” -Mark Lewis, Chief Operating Officer, Eclipse Automation

“OCNI is pleased to participate in the opening celebration for Eclipse Automation’s new automation and advanced robotics facility in Cambridge and to applaud this investment that will support the safe operation of Ontario’s 19 nuclear units while creating long-term quality jobs in the local community.” -Ron Oberth, President and CEO, OCNI

“A huge congratulations on the grand opening today of Eclipse’s new Nuclear Automation Facility right here in Cambridge. It’s a testament to their technical skill and growth as a major player in the nuclear industry. Their decades of work in critical infrastructure has made them instrumental in creating great jobs, supporting our community, and helping power our lives, literally.” –Bryan May, MP for Cambridge

“On behalf of the Government and Ontarians, let me thank you for the important contribution you are making in sustaining Ontario’s nuclear industry. Once again, congratulations on the successful grand opening of the new facility. This is great news for the entire Eclipse Automation Team and for the people of Cambridge and area who will benefit from this investment in the local economy and job creation in their community.” – Hon. Bill Walker, Associate Minister of Energy
