You’ve probably bought one of their products without knowing that it was manufactured right here on Long Island. 

For over five decades, Contract Pharmacal Corp (CPC) has been operating. Founded in 1971 by John and Harriet Wolf in their garage in Connecticut, CPC moved to Hauppauge when the family moved to Long Island, and is now run by their sons Mark and Matthew Wolf.

The company boasts an impressive track record with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ensuring that all products meet stringent safety and efficacy standards. CPC’s commitment to quality is reflected in competitive pricing, demand flexibility, and scalability, catering to major pharmaceutical companies, retailers, and wholesalers.

CPC develops, manufactures, and packages a broad range of pharmaceutical needs, including over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, and solid-dose Rx pharmaceuticals. They work with several large and small scale pharmaceutical distributors on Long Island, including CVS and Walgreens.

CPC hosts 30 regulatory audits annually and serves 65 customers worldwide with a 30 billion dosage capacity. The company produces 600 products and has commercialized 6,500 products to date. CPC has a workforce of 1,500 employees, a 350 million annual bottling capacity, and 750,000 square feet of production facilities, all based in Hauppauge Industrial Park.

Each year, CPC hosts a Thanksgiving food drive for Long Island Cares – The Harry Chapin Food Bank and contributes to the Children’s Medical Fund of New York, the American Diabetes Association, March of Dimes, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island. 

CPC continues to innovate, with a significant milestone in their direct-to-consumer market: the launch of their vitamin and supplement brand, Earth’s Splendor, a broad product line of vitamins and supplements. Earth’s Splendor is backed by rigorous testing through certificates of analysis.

“Our journey is rooted in a commitment to quality and community,” Matt Wolf, CEO of CPC, told the Press. “We take great satisfaction in our achievements and are excited about our future endeavors, especially with Earth’s Splendor.
