History

ACE Company (Advanced Computer Engineers) was founded by graduates of Taganrog State University of Radio Engineering in 1992.

By that time, one of its founders worked at the Rostov Research and Development Institute of Microtechnology, which was developing and manufacturing HDDs for the Ministry of Electronic Industry of the USSR. Later on, most engineers-developers from this research institute went to work at ACE, and intensified their research in the HDD field.

Now, our company has over 80 highly qualified specialists. Most of our staff are graduates of the universities that are among the best in Russia.

ACE was the first in the world to offer professional HDD repair and recovery tools in the data recovery market, and since that time we have supplied the most efficient solutions for repairing and recovering data from HDDs: SATA/PATA/IDE, SAS/SCSI and NAND-based devices: SSD/Flash drives and other types of storage media.

Our flagship PC-3000 solutions have evolved along with the constantly changing nature of hard drive technologies. In fact, we not only have kept abreast by offering new data recovery technologies, but we have also anticipated them.
