Our Path to Expertise


Eclipse is founded by Steve Mai, Todd Ronald and Richard Bula in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. It steadily becomes a privately-held success story within the automation industry.


Eclipse goes global. Steve Mai acquires sole ownership and the company expands with new US sites in Mesa, Arizona, and Rock Hill, South Carolina. Besides an expansive campus in Cambridge, D&D Automation in Stratford, Ontario joins the portfolio. In Europe acquisitions of Transmoduls, Hungary and SMZ Wickel-und Montagetechnik AG, Switzerland, brings further growth and expertise, as well as the opening of a new Eclipse Technology and Manufacturing site near Munich Germany. The building of a large Eclipse factory for the ASEAN region breaks ground in Penang, Malaysia.


Eclipse is acquired by Accenture plc, a Fortune Global 500 professional services company that helps clients with business and technology strategy, and operational solutions. The acquisition of Eclipse brings direct automation design and build capabilities into Accenture’s value proposition of digital transformation for its clients.


Eclipse Automation, part of Accenture’s Industry X group, creates a powerful offering to exceed clients’ manufacturing goals through cutting-edge smart automation systems combined with Accenture’s extensive digital solutions.
