OPENED: New Swadlincote HQ
Heather Wheeler, MP for South Derbyshire, has officially opened the new Swadlincote headquarters of Eclipse Automotive Technology.
Opened on May 12, the new premises come after Eclipse had outgrown their previous base, with the new facilities enabling further growth and provision of in-house training.
A new training suite provides modern classroom facilities and workshops where students can learn the principles and practicalities of working with some of the most advanced diagnostic equipment in the industry.
Ms Wheeler said: “South Derbyshire is becoming a centre for innovative industries and particularly for those associated with the motor industry.
“Companies such as Eclipse are vital to the future growth, providing technically advanced products for commercial vehicles that improve the on-going service levels, benefiting both aftermarket service providers and fleet operators.”
Richard Parkin, Sales Director at Eclipse, added: “We are delighted to be able to move into our new home which, as we grow, will enable us to continue to support our customers and further develop our strong training and customer support philosophy.”
