The revolution began when William H. Wilson, the founder of Pioneer Eclipse Corporation, developed the first propane-powered floor buffer. Recognising the need to cut labour costs and reduce the time required for traditional spray buffing, Wilson harnessed the efficient power of propane, allowing his customers to burnish much larger areas of floor space in a fraction of the time. These cutting-edge developments propelled Pioneer Eclipse to the forefront of the floor care and maintenance supply industry, resulting in repeated listings in Inc. Magazine’s list of the 500 Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies in the United States.
Recognising this national leadership, AMANO Corporation, a multi-national Japanese company specialising in the design and production of Time, Cost Management, Parking, and Environmental Systems joined forces with Pioneer Eclipse to create today’s leading innovator in the international floor care market.
Amano Pioneer Eclipse is located in Sparta, NC where its 100,000 square foot facility manufactures floor care and sanitation chemicals and equipment for the Jan-San industry.
Today the revolution continues, as Amano Pioneer Eclipse remains steadfast in the commitment to develop the world’s highest quality, most effective floor care systems and solutions.
