About Us

Laipac Technology, Inc, was founded in 1999 by Canadian entrepreneurs Maria C. Pacini and Diego Lai. The vision of Laipac was simple, even at its founding – provide peace of mind to customers by crafting the absolute best, most reliable, and easiest-to-use locator devices on the market.
Today, Laipac Technology has become an industry leader in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) products and services. But the vision hasn’t changed. At Laipac Technology, we build with the customer in mind – above all else.
