Our History

A Legacy of Pharmacy Compounding

The legacy of our pharmacy compounding goes back many years to father and son, Jim Buderer, P.Ph. and Matt Buderer, R.Ph. Founded in 1878, the Sandusky Deutsch Apotheke practice originally was located downtown on Lake Erie. Alvin G. Buderer, R.Ph., joined the practice after graduating from Ohio State University in 1927. The name of the pharmacy changed to “Kubach and Buderer” and it remained in the downtown area for 40 more years. Jim Buderer, a 1963 Ohio State University graduate, joined his father in practice at Kubach and Buderer. At that time, more than 40% of all prescriptions written and sent to Kubach and Buderer Drug had to be compounded.
In 1973, he formed a partnership with Fisher Drug and brought his heritage of pharmacy to the corner of Hancock and East Monroe. Today, the corner of Hancock and East Monroe streets is known as Buderer Drug Company.

In 1999, the Buderer’s decided to transfer the traditional retail business to a local drug store chain, focusing solely on compounding innovative and customized medicines for its patients. Today, Buderer Drug Company has expanded to three locations in Northern Ohio – Sandusky, Perrysburg, and Avon. Jim and Matt continue their compounding pharmacy’s heritage.
