Pace: The Clear Choice

Forty years ago on August 3rd, Pace was founded.

It started in a 1,600ft rented space for both the lab, and office in Minneapolis, MN. Demand for Environmental services was strong, and Pace survived its startup years. Forty years later, Pace is a company we are all proud to be a part of.

As our mission statement says, we are
“Working together to protect our environment and improve our health.”
It is hard to think of anything that we would rather do. We now have over 2,500 people working towards that mission.


Our Environmental Division provides for data to help our customers comply with environmental rules and to clean up contamination. We determine whether water is safe to drink and whether air is safe to breathe.

Our LabOps Division was created over 20 years ago to support our customer’s labs. Today, we provide professionals for those laboratories, we help them maintain their instruments and we help them comply with regulations.

Our Life Sciences Division was created 12 years ago to help pharmaceutical and medical device customers determine the quality and safety of their products. We provide testing to confirm quality and safety and we help develop lifesaving drugs.
