About Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson was founded as a family business in New Brunswick, New Jersey, in 1886 and originally had 14 employees. Three brothers, Robert, James and Edward Johnson, recognized a need among physicians to improve and simplify hygiene in their practices. The success of their medical products allowed the young company to grow rapidly,

and today Johnson & Johnson is the world's leading health care company.

Johnson & Johnson has more than 265 operating companies in over 60 countries and employs some 126,500 people.
