About This Brand
After examining him, they suggested he take a specific form of vitamin E. In less than three weeks, he was back to work and looked noticeably better. Susan began extensively researching and was inspired to create her own line of high-quality, all-natural vitamin E. J. R. Carlson Laboratories, Inc. was founded in 1965 with a single product — Key-E 200 IU. The second product, E-Gems 200 IU, was introduced two years later, and other strengths were added shortly after that.Susan managed the company from her third-floor, walk-up apartment on North Winchester Avenue in Chicago and also worked part-time as a pharmacist in a high-traffic store in Wheeling, Illinois. By 1968, Susan had hired two employees who helped her open a small neighborhood store on Damen Avenue in Chicago. Soon after that, a sales representative was added to the team, and Carlson products began popping up on the shelves of popular health food stores across Chicago. As the brand continued to grow, Susan expanded Carlson into the space next door.
In 1970, the business moved to a larger office space on North Kedzie Avenue, and Susan left her pharmacy position to focus on Carlson full time. Her husband John, who previously worked as the chief water engineer for the city of Chicago, was named the president of Carlson. Within six years, they outgrew the space. With the help of John’s architect friend, they found property and built the brand new Carlson headquarters on College Drive in Arlington Heights. Two years later, the operations expanded to the neighboring building.Today, the headquarters are located at 600 West University Drive in Arlington Heights, and the next generation of Carlson continues to ensure that the Carlson name represents only the highest quality products. John and Susan’s daughters - President Carilyn Anderson and Vice President of Marketing Kirsten Carlson - and their dedicated team - are proud to offer more than 250 vitamins, minerals, fish oils, and other supplements designed with your family’s unique nutritional needs in mind.
