Vanguard ID Systems surpasses a major milestone - one billion key tags manufactured
Vanguard ID Systems announced today that it has manufactured its one-billionth bar coded key tag. Twenty years after inventing the technology, Vanguard has surpassed this milestone, producing 1,020,118,000 key tags to date. Over that period, the increasingly ubiquitous accessory produced by the West Chester, PA based corporation has taken up residence next to house keys and car keys the world over. In fact, if you laid all of the key tags Vanguard has produced end to end, the resulting strand would produce a bar code that would encircle the earth one and two-thirds times.
