How many here didn’t know Johnson’s Baby powder? or any Johnson Product. I’m guessing everyone knows the Johnson Brand. I ‘ve asked about it for the reason that it’s been a big help to all of us. How would you clean your ears without the Johnson & Johnsons’ cotton buds? How about the Baby oil and Baby powder your mother put on your back when you are sweating. Isn’t it amazing the almost a century that this company is caring for the whole world. I’ve been very curious about it on how this company made it to the Fortune 500 company. Not to say that, they did great on their marketing strategy. I grew up with J&J. Until now, We are still using this brand for my kids.
According to wikipedia,
Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) is an international American pharmaceutical, medical devices and consumer packaged goods manufacturer founded in 1886. Its common stock is a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the company is listed among the Fortune 500.
Johnson & Johnson consistently ranks at the top of Harris Interactive's National Corporate Reputation Survey, ranking as the world's most respected company by Barron's Magazine, and was the first corporation awarded the Benjamin Franklin Award for Public Diplomacy by the U.S. State Department for its funding of international education programs. A suit brought by the United States Department of Justice in 2010, however, alleges that the company from 1999 to 2004 illegally marketed drugs including antipsychotics to Omnicare, a pharmacy that dispenses the drugs in nursing homes. Johnson & Johnson responded that the payments were lawful and appropriate.
The corporation's headquarters is located in New Brunswick, New Jersey, United States with the consumer division being located in Skillman, New Jersey. The corporation includes some 250 subsidiary companies with operations in over 57 countries and products sold in over 175 countries. Johnson & Johnson had worldwide pharmaceutical sales of $24.6 billion for the calendar year of 2008.
Johnson & Johnson's brands include numerous household names of medications and first aid supplies. Among its well-known consumer products are the Band-Aid Brand line of bandages, Tylenol medications, Johnson's baby products, Neutrogena skin and beauty products, Clean & Clear facial wash and Acuvue contact lenses. Much of its business is in the baby registry, as many advertising deals with babies.
