As the COVID-19 pandemic took hold in the spring of 2020, Steve Mai, our CEO at Eclipse Automation decided to take matters into his own hands regarding the lack of a domestic supply chain for PPE in Canada. Steve knew that his team, who were already highly skilled in Life Sciences and medical device automation could design and build anything, and in record time, so he set about creating a spin-off company to produce a local supply of reliable, quality N95 style respirators and procedure masks at our head office in Cambridge, Ontario.
Our Eclipse team was used to building complex custom systems for other manufacturers but this time we set out to source the most efficient equipment and best quality materials to manufacture respirators and masks in-house. Our team went through numerous equipment modifications and materials testing to make the end product outstanding in terms of fit, comfort and performance. Our Health Canada certified respirators test at an exceptional 99 percent particulate filtration efficiency.
At Eclipse Innovations we are proud to be open for business, supplying peace of mind on the front lines and in everyday life with our affordable, high-performance respirators - for Canadians, by Canadians.
