Company description

Ferring is a speciality, research-driven biopharmaceutical company that identifies, develops, manufactures and markets innovative products in the fields of urology, reproductive health, gastroenterology and endocrinology.

From its origins as a distinctly Scandinavian company, Ferring has developed into a global business with operating units in most important pharmaceutical markets around the world.

Ferring’s vision is to be the partner of choice for patients, physicians and business associates offering a leading portfolio of products and services in its key therapeutic areas, using innovative methodologies to provide tailored treatments that function on the body’s own terms.

In two rented rooms in Malmö, Sweden, Dr. Frederik Paulsen founded Nordiska Hormon Laboratoriet in 1950, which in 1954 changed its name to Ferring. He named the company after the strong, closely knit community of people originating from the island Föhr who called themselves Feringers, and spoke Fering.

World leader in peptide hormones, Ferring became a pioneer in developing and selling pharmaceutical products based upon natural, pituitary-produced peptide hormones. Dr. Paulsen was convinced that these new compounds could be used to supplement deficiencies and correct abnormalities, thus playing an invaluable role in the treatment of life-threatening conditions.

Five decades later, Dr. Paulsen’s predictions have proved remarkably accurate. Today, peptides from Ferring are widely used in Ferring’s treatments. The development of the product MINIRIN (desmopressin), used to treat nocturnal enuresis, or bedwetting, formed the basis of Ferring’s international expansion and boosted revenues from the late 1980s on.
