About TAB-PRO LLC
TAB-PRO LLC has been a leading specialist in the tableting and solids processing category for over 50 years. We manufacture the highest quality non-FDA tablets and grinding aids. TAB-PRO LLC is engaged, because of its expertise, by many large firms to work with their R&D staffs, and by small high-tech firms, on a project or contract basis, for blending and tableting process development and product manufacture. "TAB-PRO" stands for tableting and Processing. These activities started in 1955 when tablets for life insurance biomedical laboratories were no longer obtainable from outside contractors in the quantity and quality required.
The Short Story
In 1955, TAB-PRO LLC needed tablets and the supplier had retired. We bought a press, blender and learned the hard way. Others heard about us and asked us to make tablets. Formulation and Process development resulted in new clients. Starting in an 8'x10' room, we now have 54,000 SF and 50 blenders, presses, grinders, mills, screeners and packaging equipment.

The staff is specially trained in formulation, particle size, excipient selection, and processing technology concepts that differ radically from pharmaceutical and health aid tableting. We offer R&D support, Lab Trials, Scale up, Pre-Processing and Full Production of Agglomerates, Blends, Tablets, and Packaging. Training Seminars and Consulting Services are also a part of the TAB-PRO LLC contribution to this specialized technology. TAB-PRO LLC is a registered EPA establishment.
All custom work is kept strictly confidential when the client pays for formulation and process development. (A sample tablet from the open market was submitted with a request to duplicate it. We denied this request since we had produced this "sample" for an existing client).
"Secrecy" is policy in regard to all clients. On rare occasions, if it seems two clients may benefit from knowing each other, both are contacted for permission to give out their names. For documented Secrecy Agreements, you can submit yours and we can submit ours.
