Inspec Tech, Inc., was founded in 1992 by Mark Freeman. The company name was derived from the barcode technology it sold. For a barcode to be scanned properly, it had to be within industry specifications or "Inspec". Thus the name Inspec Tech. Due to direct competition, Inspec Tech began converting labels with the purchase of its first press in 1993. The following year, the company moved to a 5000 square foot plant. In 1998, the company purchased land in the Valley Head Industrial park and built a new plant of 15,000 sq. ft. In 2006, another 10,000 sq. ft. was added to the current plant.
