Who we are

Friedrich Merz cared deeply about helping people. That is why the 24-year-old German chemist founded the Merz company in 1908. Now, more than 110 years later, we at Merz Therapeutics, as part of the Merz Group, are proud of our broad portfolio of well-established products that treat severe health conditions such as movement disorders, neurological conditions or liver diseases. It is our ambition to really make a difference for patients and healthcare providers. Therefore, in the tradition of our founder, when we develop new products, technologies or services, we always first ask ourselves the question “What is needed?”


Merz Therapeutics

At Merz Therapeutics, we seek to address the unique needs of people who suffer from movement disorders, neurological conditions, and other health conditions that severely impact patients’ quality of life. With our patient-centric approach, cutting-edge research and development efforts, highly-scientific medical affairs resources and dedicated commercial teams, we continue the advancement of new and individualized treatment standards, including botulinum toxin. Merz Therapeutics GmbH is headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany and is represented in more than 90 countries, with a North America affiliate based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Merz Therapeutics GmbH is part of the Merz Group, a privately held, family-owned company that has dedicated more than 110 years to developing innovations that serve unmet patient and customer needs.



Working together for the good of patients

Every day our employees use their skills to address patients’ unmet needs. To reach as many people as possible our marketing and field presence operates throughout more than 80 countries through our global group of companies. Also, we rely on our experienced and successful global distribution partner management. In order to provide innovative products that meet the highest quality standards, our R&D department (located in Germany) cooperates with a recognized expert network and turns these insights into solutions – such as in our state-of-the-art neurotoxin biotechnology production site.
