Behind the Scenes of Our History
Here’s another special behind the scenes video tour of some lesser known items from Johnson & Johnson history. If you’ve ever wondered where the last loading dock for horse drawn wagons at Johnson & Johnson is located, which unusual 1960s fashion was made by one of our operating companies, why we once made doll clothing, and how we got from medicated plasters to JOHNSON’S® Baby Powder, you’ll know the answers to all of those questions after you watch this post. You’ll also be able to see -- for the first time -- letters from two of our founders written in 1887, just a year after the Company was founded. Enjoy!
This video looks great! Love seeing the old letters and learning about all the products that used to be in J&J's portfolio.
Simply fantastic! It's so interesting to hear about J&J's growth and desire for innovation. Truly amazing!
I enjoy your stories on the history of Johnson & Johnson and look forward to your videos on the Kilmer House. I became interested in the background of the company after joining the company and after reading "The General" my interest was peaked. It amazed me to learn how basic ideas were turned into products and the inovation that can be created from need. The history of the Band-aid was especially of interest and how an employee's need at home was tranformed into a product of world-wide use. Please continue to educate us through these segments and demonstrate J&J's diversity in the past as well as in the present. Thank you.
Love the Kilmer House articles. Will you every publish a hardbound of the stories--for purchase.
I'm glad you like the blog! I've had several questions about reproducing the stories on Kilmer House in hard copy, and with our 125th anniversary coming up in 2011, it might be a consideration. If anyone else would be interested in something like that, please let me know through the blog!
I love these historical videos. I started with Devro back in Lubbock, Texas a little over 35 years ago. I love working for a company that has such a great heritage. Keep these videos and historical stories coming. Thanks..Randy
