        Johnson & Johnson was founded in 1886 when three brothers, Robert Wood Johnson, James Wood Johnson, and Edward Mead Johnson combined their separate businesses into one medical product company. Robert was in the apothecary business, and James and Edward produced medical products. In 1887, the brothers entered the surgical dressing industry by founding Johnson & Johnson and made their company incorporated. They first began producing products such as plasters with medicinal compounds in the adhesive, a soft absorbent cotton and gauze. They gained a good reputation in 1888, when they publish Modern Methods of Antiseptic Wound Treatment. Ever since the company began, it pursued diversification. In 1891, they formed their own bacteriology lab to better study the problems of airborne germs. Edward Johnson’s interest in childhood nutrition lead him to leave the company he and his brothers made and make his own company that concentrated on baby formula, Mead Johnson, in 1897. In 1919, James Johnson and Robert Johnson made their company go international and it expanded to Canada. In the 1920’s Johnson & Johnson added consumer products to their business interest route. In the year of 1921, the Band-aid, Johnson’s Baby Cream, and many other products such as the Johnson and Johnson’s Baby Powder were created. They got their first European associate in 1924 to Great Britain. In 1931, they affiliated in Australia. To this day, they are affiliated with about 100 countries. In 1941, they formed a separate division for suture production and in 1944 they began trading stock. Tylenol and other medicinal products were introduced in the 1960’s. There they planned a division for pharmaceuticals. Around the 1970’s they branched into women’s sanitary products and toiletries industry. Now they are also in biopharmaceuticals, orthopedic devices, and Internet publishing. In recent years, they purchased Pfizer’s Consumer Healthcare department.
