PASCO scientific Announces Launch of PASCO Canada

Experienced Canadian team will offer full PASCO product line

ROSEVILLE, CALIF.—PASCO scientific, a worldwide leader in innovative science education solutions, today announced a new distributor to serve educators across Canada. The new distributor, PASCO Canada, is a Canadian-owned company based in Burlington, Ontario.

PASCO Canada will carry the complete line of PASCO equipment and will be the exclusive distributor of the PASCO physics apparatus line for the Canadian market.

Led by educational market veteran Dianne Beveridge, the PASCO Canada team offers more than 20 years of experience serving Canadian educators, and has extensive experience with the complete line of PASCO products.

“In selecting a new partner to represent PASCO in Canada, we needed to put our customers first,” said Paul Stokstad, founder and president of PASCO scientific. “We know the team at PASCO Canada will deliver the expertise and support that our customers in Canada deserve, and we look forward to working with PASCO Canada to provide these educators with innovative solutions for teaching science.”

With this new partnership, PASCO scientific expects to provide Canadian educators a more personalized service, including province-specific solutions. For example, PASCO Canada has created a strategic alliance with Edvantage Press, a British Columbia-based company that combines experience in teaching, publishing and technology to create customized resources that help students and teachers succeed.

“This alliance with Edvantage Press is just one example of our commitment to supporting our Canadian customers,” said Beveridge, president of PASCO Canada. “We have assembled a team that brings a wealth of experience in Canadian science education and PASCO solutions, and we look forward to providing an unmatched level of service to Canadian educators.”

Beveridge announced that PASCO Canada will be launching an e-commerce website to provide easier selection and ordering of PASCO science education products in the near future.

PASCO probeware solutions will be available in Canada through both Boreal Laboratories and PASCO Canada. The PASCO Physics line will be available exclusively through PASCO Canada.

PASCO has been designing, developing, and supporting innovative teaching and learning solutions for K–12 and higher education since 1964. PASCO’s team of educators, scientists, educational researchers, engineers, and many others is committed to the advancement of STEM education around the world.
