Headquartered in Switzerland, Ferring has commercial subsidiaries in over 45 countries and its products are available in more than 70 countries. The company's R&D centers are located in: Saint-Prex (Switzerland), San Diego and Parsippany (U.S.), Copenhagen (Denmark), Mumbai (India) and Beer Tuvia (Israel).
