Customer Highlight: Mentholatum! As GenTech’s third Customer of the Month honoree, we salute another local company, The Mentholatum Company. Founded in Kansas in 1889 by Albert Alexander Hyde, The Mentholatum Company built a new factory in Buffalo, NY in 1919. In 1945, moved its corporate offices to Buffalo as well. Acquired by the Japanese Rohto Pharmaceutical Co. in 1998, The Mentholatum Company moved to Orchard Park, NY. The Mentholatum Building in Buffalo was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017. (History buffs will want to check out the very interesting 2017 article by Buffalo Rising.)

Customer Highlight: Mentholatum

Today The Mentholatum Company sells its products in more than 130 countries. At its state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Orchard Park, the company manufactures a number of well-known brands, including Oxy® Skin Care, Phisoderm®, Softlips®, and of course, Mentholatum®. Attention Western New York job seekers – they’re a great place to work and they’re hiring!
