CAMBRIDGE, Ont.—An Ontario firm that supplies some of the top names in tech, including Apple, Google and Tesla, is planning to build out its Cambridge facility with a $2.4 million investment.

With a $240,700 boost from the government’s Southwestern Ontario Development Fund, Eclipse Automation Inc. will expand its plant, purchase new equipment and hire 15 new employees.

“Partnering with the province of Ontario will allow Eclipse Automation to expand its capabilities and penetrate new international markets,” the company’s president and CEO, Steve Mai, said. “This funding will help our company to explore new and innovative technologies to better position us in the marketplace, and keep ahead of the demands of a global economy.”

The company, which builds custom automated manufacturing equipment, plans to continue to push into new global markets in the energy, mining, health sciences, transportation, and technology industries with the investment.
