A few words about our company

Echo Automation was created in 2014 by Sean Donovan and a group of trusted colleagues to fill the gap in the market place for complete machine design to build automation solutions. Originally envisioned as expensive processes, bespoke machine design has proven again and again that the outlay far outweighs the savings in the future. Having a small team with clear goals, dedicated to the project, streamlines the process and makes it much more cost effective resulting in capital freed up more business growth. With more and more Echo Automation machines in the field and clients being so happy with the attitude and ease of service, this spawned a new angle of business, service. Echo Service is now a contractable service offering 24/7 breakdown cover to production clients and essential services. We have experience in milk factories, butter factories, honey processing, concrete production, filling machines, scale based systems, metal detectors, x-ray machines, pallet handling, conveyors, hazardous areas and emergency stop solutions, to name a few.
