Toronto Research Chemicals, TRC, was founded in 1982 by Dr. David Dime to manufacture and supply researchers in the biomedical fields with specialized complex organic small molecules that were not commercially available. In 1983, the company was incorporated in Ontario as Toronto Research Chemicals Inc. It was initially located at the University of Toronto.
