The 12 digit UPC bar code system was designed in the early 1970s by George J. Laurer in the USA (when he was working as an engineer for IBM).
A few years later he developed a 13 digit version of this code - the EAN-13 code - for use internationally (outside of the USA).

George Laurer was a consultant for IBM before he established the 12-digit bar code that is now used on products in stores.
In 1971 the company's management asked Laurer if he could design an optical code that would be innovative for the grocery industry that would remain in use and eventually be adopted by other merchandise producing companies. Laurer also created a symbol to accompany the bar code and after three submitted proposals, the UPC bar code was born. Laurer also played a substantial role in the development of scanning equipment that would read each UPC symbol every time an item was purchased at the checkout counter.

The UPC numbering system and bar symbols were designed in the early 1970's by George J. Laurer on behalf of IBM.
He presented them to the food industries as a universal way to keep track of inventories, prices and manufacturers. In addition, the US company we purchase our barcode numbers from is recommended by George J. Laurer (inventor of UPC codes). We purchase our barcode numbers from a reputable source in the US, which is recommended by George J. Laurer, who guarantee that they have not sold our numbers to anyone else. George Joseph Laurer (born September 23, 1925 in New York) developed the Universal Product Code (UPC) in 1973. As an engineer at IBM, he was asked to develop the pattern used for the Universal Product Code. Have a look at his website http://www.laurerupc.com. He freely shares his knowledge and expertise about the symbol he created and clarifies many of its surrounding issues. He also expresses his frustration with the exorbitant fees charged by GS1-US, and recommends reputable companies like ours which can provide small quantities of UPC (barcode) numbers at an affordable price. (Our barcode numbers come from a source recommended by George J Laurer)

The barcoding system, created in the 70's by George Laurer, is a universal system for keeping track of items and prices in inventory systems worldwide.
We also have a written guarantee from the company these barcodes have come from that these numbers are for our resale only - the company we get them from is recommended by George Laurer (the inventor of the UPC Barcode). - George Laurer invented the 12 digit UPC-A Barcode system when he was working for IBM. He is supportive of reseller barcode numbers like ours and does not like the way GS1 has decided to restrict entry to the market by charging high fees.
