Merz Aesthetics – the Company
In 1908 the young, entrepreneurial pharmacist & chemist, Friedrich Merz (pronounced murtz), set up his company in Frankfurt with the establishment of his own pharmaceuticals production plant. Just one year later, as his business began to grow, he expanded with the acquisition of an old cigarette factory at 100 Eckenheimer Landstrasse, Frankfurt. This site remains the spiritual home of Merz and is the location for the Company headquarters today. Since that time Merz has pioneered the development of a number of innovations which have led to the improvement in the lives of thousands of people worldwide.
