The legacy of compounding goes back many years for father and son, Jim Buderer, RPh and Matt Buderer, RPh of Buderer Drug Co. in Sandusky and Perrysburg, Ohio. Founded in 1878, the Sandusky Deutsch Apotheke practice originally was located downtown on Lake Erie. Jim's father, Alvin G. Buderer, RPh, a 1927 graduate of Ohio State University, joined the practice after graduation. The name of the pharmacy changed to Kubach and Buderer and remained in the downtown area for 40 more years. Jim, a 1963 Ohio State University graduate, moved the business and formed a partnership with Fisher Drug.

Matt Buderer, R.Ph., FIACP is a 1993 graduate of The University of Toledo College of Pharmacy. Matt has lectured at numerous hormone replacement therapy seminars, presented at a variety of national compounding seminars regarding various compounding techniques, and currently serves as a consultant to several surgical centers. In 1998, Matt earned the designation "FIACP" (Fellow, International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists) is recognition of his knowledge, high professional standards, and contributions to the profession of compounding.

Today, Jim and Matt continue their pharmacy heritage. Fisher Drug is a specialty pharmacy practice, while Buderer Drug Co. remains a general practice compounding pharmacy. In March 1999, Jim and Matt were recipients of the PCCA Compounding Pharmacist of the Month award.
