About Pace Tech

HISTORY
Pace Tech was formed in 1987. During the past decades, the company has positioned itself as a reputable leader in the manufacturing and distribution of quality medical monitoring equipment worldwide.

PURPOSE
To bring low-cost high-tech medical instruments to the world.

MISSION STATEMENT
To provide health care providers with high quality medical monitoring equipment where we can be proud of the integrity and workmanship of each product sold to the end-user. To offer superior customer service, always remembering that life sustaining and important medical analysis decisions are based on readings rendered by our equipment.

PRINCIPAL’S QUALIFICATIONS
Company founder and shareholder, Ilhan Bilgutay worked for many years as an electrical engineer in research and development to several major manufacturing companies. He holds a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. He organized his first business enterprise in Minnesota in 1972 and relocated to Florida in 1978.

Ilhan holds several U.S. patents including the Optical Character Reading System and Bar Code Font now used world-wide on all grocery items and inventory control applications. He also holds a patent on the unique, artifact-resistant blood pressure monitoring system which formed the basis of Pace Tech’s pioneering entry into the pre-hospital emergency medical market of automatic blood pressure monitors.

Ilhan’s original efforts were in the area of designing and manufacturing the first self-monitoring device for people with implanted pacemakers. Now, he focuses on new product developments for the company. The company has actively engaged in the research, development, manufacturing, and marketing of multi-parameter physiological monitors.

Pace Tech has invested considerably in modernizing and redesigning the entire product line over the past few years. The new product line has a unique style and computer-age look which is well-accepted by end-users for it’s ease-of-use, appearance, quality, and price.

THE FUTURE
Major emphasis will continue on research and development of new technology. We have proposals in front of various global regulatory groups to approve our next generation product line. Projects are already underway to enhance the newest product line with improvements necessary to keep us globally competitive well into the future.
