Pace began on a much smaller scale in 1978, serving Minneapolis and the surrounding areas with founder and CEO Steve Vanderboom at the helm. A commitment to safety and high ethical standards, respect for both clients and employees, and a drive for excellence inspired us as we expanded - and these values are at the core of everything we do today. Still under Vanderboom's directorship, we are proud to be industry leaders, offering an unparalleled range of services delivered by the most experienced scientific professionals. No matter the scope of work or special requirements, we have the people, knowledge and technology to tackle them.
