Working Toward a Clear Future

We’re dedicated to exceeding the expectations of our customers by offering programs designed around their unique needs supported by carefully researched, formulated and field-tested products.

Welcome to Pace Solutions

VISION: Efficiently using water, conserving energy, and controlling disease for a better planet.

MISSION: We are committed to elevating the experiences of our customers by consistently delivering more than what is expected, while nurturing a culture of growth and collaboration that empowers our team members to achieve their full potential.

Pace Solutions Corp. has 10 offices and 7 warehouses located strategically throughout Canada, from British Columbia to Ontario, in order to properly service our local customers. In some regions, customers are concerned with scale prevention while in softer water regions our customers require corrosion prevention, so Pace has developed many unique formulations for cooling towers, steam boilers and closed looped heating and chilled systems. By contacting your local Pace Technical Representatives they can help develop a treatment program to meet all of your needs.


With over 40 years in business, Pace has evolved into a water and energy conservation partner for its clients. New initiatives like the Pace RemoteLink™ System (2-way remote access) and energy saving additives EndoTherm and EndoGreen help combat rising energy costs and building CO2 emissions.


Through our Plant Health Division, Pace provides a complete line of industrial cleaning and disinfecting products, all approved by the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) or PRMA (Pest Management Regulatory Agency), for food plant or greenhouse use. The Pace ACBD System® (Always Clean Before Disinfecting) was developed to help companies conform to HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and Food Safety programs in bakeries, greenhouses, medicinal growing facilities and many other demanding applications.


We believe that if we always strive to satisfy our customers’ needs and provide timely service, we will keep their business. For this reason, many of our customers have stayed with us for over 40 years. Call us today for answers to how Pace Solutions can help lower your company’s maintenance costs and energy consumption.
