About Us

Founded in 1897, the J.F. Hartz Company provided surgical instruments, medical supplies, and equipment to the medical profession. In 1950, the focus shifted to serving Michigan doctors and hospitals through surgical and pharmaceutical divisions. A few years later the name was changed to Ferndale Surgical and Laboratories. In 1975, the company, then called Ferndale Laboratories, Inc., reacted to the challenges of the changing needs of the medical community by embarking on a mission to grow from a local pharmaceutical manufacturer to a healthcare company with national recognition. Technology enabled the company to reach out to the national marketplace, creating an inside sales force which was followed in 1996 by the implementation of an outside sales force. The synergy between these two groups combined to provide customers with national coverage and ensured exponential growth for the company. In 2004, Ferndale Laboratories, Inc. reorganized to form the Ferndale Pharma Group, Inc., the holding company for a number of healthcare specialty companies, including:

  • Ferndale Labs & Contract Manufacturing, a company that provides pharmaceutical production, quality control, quality assurance, product development, warehousing, and distribution
  • Biopelle, Inc., a leader in aesthetic medicine that focuses on skin care products that help discover skin’s potential
  • Eloquest Healthcare, Inc., a dermatology specialty company that focuses specifically on serving hospitals, their healthcare practitioners, and patients
  • Ferndale Healthcare, Inc., a specialty healthcare company that offers high-value prescription and over-the-counter products treating a wide variety of medical conditions·
  • Ferndale Worldwide, a global presence that consists of:
