- About Us
Back on June 26, 1974, the first UPC (on a pack of Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit gum) was scanned at a grocery store in Troy, OH. This was a momentous achievement for the grocery industry who had been begging for help. Now, we know this barcode scan literally changed the world—and for us, was the start of our AIDC industry that has transformed the supply chains of every industry and continues to do so today. Think about how often a barcode gets used in your everyday life—grocery store check-outs, deliveries, flights, etc. It’s truly the most amazing, and yet still inconspicuous, innovation!
To commemorate this historic event, we’ve created our own National Day!!! June 26 will now be known as National Barcode Day. Our founding partners are Datalogic and ScanSource (Thank you so much!) We will be part of the National Day calendar. This day will be part of Barcoding’s new Celebration of Innovation Month (June)—with details to come.
