Tishcon Corp was founded in Westbury, New York by Raj Chopra, Vipin Patel, and others in 1976 as a contract manufacturer of bulk products, mostly for mail order marketers and wholesalers. Over the years, the company has expanded to offer a full line of services: from packaging and labeling to new product development. A second location, in Salisbury, Maryland was established in 1984.
Presently, co-founder Raj Chopra serves as CEO. Chopra has an extensive background in various disciplines related to the nutriceutical, vitamin, and supplement industry. In addition to previous work with contract manufacturers, Chopra has expertise in formulation, product development, nutrition research, and food technology. This range of experience has given the company a strong basis for expanding its product offerings.
Today, Tishcon operates facilities in New York and Maryland. Westbury is the home to softgel encapsulation, Research and Development (R&D) laboratories and quality control (QC) testing labs. The Salisbury operation houses encapsulation and tableting operations, as well as all bottling, packaging and distribution. A satellite laboratory in Maryland handles QC testing during production. All purchasing and accounting functions are also located in the Salisbury facility.
