The main reason to start the company was an inspiration to solve a problem with defense against airborne germs in operating rooms and to protect patients from infection.
Robert Wood Johnson solved the problem and started his company in 1886 with two brothers, James Wood Johnson and Edward Mead Johnson in New Brunswick, New Jersey. There were just 14 employees at that time.
Johnson & Johnson was incorporated in the State of New Jersey on November 10, 1887.
