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

OUR MISSION is to innovate water treatment and energy conservation across all industrial and environmental sectors. We strive to exceed the expectations of our customers by supporting the education and advancement of our employees. Committed to the health and welfare of the communities we serve, we support environmental stewardship using sustainable products and ethical practices.

Pace Solutions Corp. has locations throughout Western Canada; Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina and Winnipeg, in order to properly service our local customers. On the prairies customers are concerned with scale prevention while on the west coast 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 almost 40 years in business, Pace has evolved into a water and energy conservation partner for its clients. New initiatives like the Pace W.E.T. System (Water and Energy Tracking) and energy saving additives EndoTherm® and EndoGreen® help combat rising energy costs and building CO2 emissions. In a drive to be more sustainable, Pace has started to produce 90% of its products at carbon neutral manufacturing facilities while implementing a recycling program for all of our plastic drums and pails.

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 HAACP (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 nearly 40 years. Call us today for answers to how Pace Solutions can help lower your company’s maintenance costs and energy consumption.



Setting the Pace

Our approach is to operate as a fully sustainable company by providing long term consumer value. This includes creating green strategies aimed towards carbon neutrality, reducing energy expenses, reducing water consumption, reducing waste materials, reducing environmental impact and reducing operational risks.

Our technical representatives are our most valued resource.  Technical Representatives are professionally trained in all aspects of industrial water treatment applications through the advanced training provided by the AWT (Association of Water Technologies), and through our internal Pace Academy training seminars.  This ensures our clients receive exceptional and knowledgeable service that pertains to their water treatment application.
