About us

Juseph Uhm opened Eastern Bamboo Corporation (now known as TPC) in his garage in 1973.  From 1973 to 2020, the company grew to $200,000,000 in annual sales.  Juseph believes his success was due to 3 basic principles: Unity, Honesty and Modesty. 

Employee happiness is an aspect of Unity, so Juseph built a community center for the company employees in 1990.  The center includes a church, parks, art gallery, solar panel farm and an orchard.
