A Message from the President
Ferring Pharmaceuticals is a privately held, research driven biopharmaceutical company established in 1950. As we celebrate 60 years of innovation, what is most important to understand about Ferring is that we are a product of our people and of our peptides. The Ferring story is about the far-reaching vision of groundbreaking scientists who understood the fundamental role of peptide hormones in controlling many of the body‘s key processes. It is a story about creating medicine on the body‘s own terms, and about the entrepreneurs with the spirit and drive to bring these medicines around the world.
Our global headquarters is in Saint-Prex, Switzerland. We employ more than 4000 people in close to 50 countries worldwide. We research, develop, manufacture and market pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical treatments that span the human life cycle, with a particular excellence in peptide and endocrine research. Our key therapeutic areas are reproductive health, women‘s health, urology, gastroenterology, endocrinology and orthopedics.
The Ferring vision is to develop innovative treatments that help patients live better lives. We are focused on our vision, and take our responsibilities very seriously. Our goal is to be recognized as a leading, independent, entrepreneurial, truly global pharmaceutical company dedicated to being among the absolute best in our chosen fields.
Our philosophy is “People Come First at Ferring”, and it is the bedrock of our company. It embodies our culture, our values, and guides all of our business practices. At Ferring, we manage for long-term leadership, not for the short-term demands of the financial markets. We believe deeply in the power of research and development, and as a company we are prepared to go where the science takes us. We believe in partnership, and in sharing scientific knowledge.
Most importantly, as a private company each of us is held accountable to adhere to the highest standards of ethics, integrity and good business practice. Ferring operates openly, and with full transparency. This, coupled with our long-term business orientation, enables each and every Ferring employee to do the right thing for the benefit of the patients and health care professionals we serve, for our company, for our colleagues, and for our communities.
Our philosophy has guided our behavior and culture for 60 years. Our vision is clear. Our leadership team is united in the mission to develop innovative solutions to the unprecedented healthcare challenges we face today... and for a better tomorrow.
