Ferndale Healthcare®, the maker of DerMend® products, has a rich history that spans more than a century.
The company was founded in 1897 as the J.F. Hartz Company. It began locally in Detroit, Michigan providing surgical instruments, as well as various medical supplies and equipment, to the medical profession. Within a few decades, significant advancements in medicine allowed the J.F. Hartz Company to swiftly evolve from a local pharmaceutical manufacturer into a major healthcare company with national recognition. In the 1950’s it became known as Ferndale Laboratories, Inc. Over the years, the company achieved exponential growth by meeting the changing needs of patients and healthcare professionals.
Today’s Ferndale Healthcare Inc., incorporated in 2010 as part of the Ferndale Pharma Group, Inc., targets several key specialty markets encompassing disease states ranging from various dermatologic conditions to benign anorectal disorders. Our mission is to provide high-quality, value-added products that help patients get back to what matters most in their lives—living well. We are proud that so many of our products are leaders in their respective categories and that they continue to maintain that leadership position.
