Few companies have the privilege of playing a role in the lives of billions of people each and every day. Fewer still are entrusted to touch the health and wellbeing of people throughout the world for generations.
Johnson & Johnson Limited has gained a reputation for delivering high-quality products in India. Today, Johnson & Johnson employ more than 2,000 people and the businesses span consumer, medical devices and diagnostics, pharmaceuticals and vision care.
BLAZE TO BRILLIANCE
Founded in 1886 in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA, Johnson & Johnson spread its roots into India in 1947. In 1948, it started marketing Johnson’s Baby Powder which was manufactured by a local company, British Drug House, in Mumbai. In September 1957, a new company, Johnson & Johnson Limited, was created and registered with 12 employees on its roll. The company was licensed to manufacture a broad range of consumer and hospital products.
The production began in 1959 from the earliest Johnson & Johnson plant in Mulund, Mumbai. In the years that followed, Johnson & Johnson Limited established a reputation for quality with a range of products that represented virtually every sector of the company’s business internationally.
The pharmaceutical industry in India has made giant strides. However, large health challenges, several unmet medical needs and low treatment rates, remain to be addressed. Johnson & Johnson India is dedicated to identifying these needs, leveraging the promise of medical science and developing transformational therapeutic solutions thus creating and delivering value for patients.
