Church & Dwight is one of America's oldest, best recognized companies, founded in 1846 by Dr. Austin Church of Connecticut, and his brother-in-law, John Dwight of Massachusetts. Together, they went into the production and marketing of Baking Soda, a trade name for bicarbonate of soda.

The company's first factory was Dr. Dwight's kitchen in Rochester, NY, and the first headquarters comprised a modest frame office over a New York City grocery store.  While Dr. Church handled production, Mr. Dwight aggressively marketed their product to City grocers. Their combined efforts planted the seeds of a product and brand that is now a staple in homes across America.

In 1867, James A. Church joined his father as a member of Church & Co. James   adapted the famous ARM & HAMMER trademark - the arm of Vulcan, Roman mythological god of fire, with hammer in hand. Since then, this trademark has become one of the world's most recognized logos - a symbol of the company's tradition of integrity and quality.

Time passed. The company grew and changed; branched out and came back together. By 1896, the descendants of the founders consolidated their interests under the name of Church & Dwight Co., Inc.
