YPB was founded by John Houston, a serial entrepreneur who having successfully built operated and sold businesses all over the world, envisioned that brands increasingly needed to protect against counterfeit and could use this as a unique way to connect to their customers, especially in regard to China where YPB was founded in 2011.
In 2014 YPB listed on the Australian Securities Exchange and in 2015 launched “Connect”, a platform facilitating brands to engage with their customers which we predict will become vital in a world where e-commerce and cross border trade is growing rapidly. In 2018 YPB acquired the global rights to the multi-patented Motif Micro smartphone readable technology which we believe can deliver “certainty of authenticity” to the world. YPB is now a global organisation with offices in Australia, China, Singapore, Thailand and USA.
They live and breathe three words – certainty of authenticity – a phrase that comes from our single-minded focus on delivering technology that consumers trust to prove what’s real in a world of fakes … and brands trust to create and maintain a unique bond with their customers.
