In 1976, Tishcon Corporation was founded by Raj Chopra, Vipin Patel, and others. Originally formed as a contract manufacturer of bulk products, mostly for mail order marketers and wholesalers, Tishcon soon became a leader in the nutraceutical industry. In 1982, the founders of Tishcon Corporation, recognizing the benefits of the soft gelatin delivery system, formed Gel-Tec, Inc.

The expertise and knowledge of its founders drove Gel-Tec's rise as an acknowledged leader in the soft gelatin encapsulation industry

Presently, co-founder Raj Chopra serves as CEO. Chopra has an extensive background in various disciplines related to the nutraceutical, 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 operations and offering a full line of services: from packaging and labeling to new product development.

Today, Tishcon operates facilities in New York and Maryland. Westbury, Long Island, NY is the home to softgel encapsulation, research and redevelopment (R&D) laboratories and quality control (QC) testing labs. The Maryland facility is where encapsulation and tableting operations are done, as well as all bottling, packaging and distribution. A satellite laboratory in Maryland handles QC testing during production

Gel-Tec is a full-service contract manufacturer deeply committed to the success of our clients product lines and dedicated to helping them increase their share of the nutraceutical market. We are the industry leaders in creating custom formulations using materials that are difficult to encapsulate.
