Trivia.

I was founded in 1951 in New York by a mushroom grower who had bought a depleted iron ore mine. Today, based in Boston and with a market value near $5 billion, I'm a storage specialist, helping more than 156,000 organizations in 32 countries store, protect and manage their information. More than 94 percent of the Fortune 1000 companies use my services. I store some of the world's most valuable historical artifacts, cultural treasures, business documents and medical records. I offer secure shredding and data backup and recovery services, too. I rake in about $3 billion annually. Who am I?

Three brothers founded me in 1886 in New Jersey. Today I encompass more than 275 operating companies in more than 60 countries, and I employ more than 125,000 people. I'm the world's largest and most diverse medical devices and diagnostics company, the sixth-largest consumer health company and the eighth-largest pharmaceuticals company. I rake in roughly $70 billion annually and have posted 51 consecutive years of dividend increases -- so far. My brands include Band-Aid, Listerine, Tylenol, Splenda, Motrin, Visine, Stayfree, K-Y, Rogaine, Procrit and Remicade. Some 25 percent of my 2012 sales came from new products. Who am I?
