Fleming Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1960 by Tom E. Fleming, a graduate of St. Louis University with a Master’s degree in chemistry. Mr. Fleming worked tirelessly for more than four decades to develop products to meet patients’ and healthcare professionals’ needs.
Mr. Fleming’s unique ability to develop products based on physicians’ requests, combined with his personal interaction with members of the healthcare community, are the foundation upon which Fleming has built its heritage of innovation and ethical product promotion.
He continued to attend medical and dental conventions (about 20 per year) until just months before he passed away. He was an active leader of his company until his death, at age 85. He is remembered as one of the cornerstones of the pharmaceutical industry.
