Our History & Milestones
Discover the Ferring story
The development of Ferring is the story of people and peptides. It is about the far-reaching vision of groundbreaking scientists to harness the fundamental role of peptide hormones in controlling many of the body’s key processes to develop medicine on the body’s own terms. And, it is about the vision of entrepreneurs with a spirit of adventure to make these medicines available throughout the globe.
Ferring became the main sponsor of the ESPE (European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology) Winter School for young paediatric endocrinologists from Eastern Europe. Ferring still supports the winter school, where the aspiring young endocrinologists attend a one week ‘crash course’, during which they receive instruction in all areas of modern endocrinology from professors from western and central Europe.
The founder’s youngest son, Frederik Paulsen, became Chairman of the Ferring Group. At the same time Ferring established Ferring in The Netherlands as a holding company for the Group. Today Frederik Paulsen is Chairman of Ferring’s Board of Directors.
