Medical Center Trading Corporation began as a modest provider of pharmaceuticals and basic surgical implements to the country's medical and healthcare industries. It was established in 1946 by Rodolfo Landahl, a Filipino German ancestry, under the name, Medical Center Drug Corporation.
In a few years, the firm was sold to Metro Drug Corp. and thereafter, in April 1970, was acquired by Mercury Drug Corporation. The Mercury Group of Companies, Inc. was then established in 1972 during the time Medical Center Drug Corp. and Mercury Drug both became subsidiaries. The two companies operated independently of each other, focusing their individual resources to their own customer base.
Medical Center Drug Corporation officially changed its name to Medical Center Trading Corporation (MCTC) on July 1, 1980. The intention was to underscore the difference in its business scope from that of Mercury Drug. It further paved the way for a more aggressive effort by MCTC to determine the unique needs of its own growing market. In less than five years, MCTC became a leader in the importation, distribution, and marketing of hospital, medical, dental, surgical and laboratory equipment and supplies, as well as home healthcare products.
In the year 1990, MCTC decided to devise and explore its marketing specialization where it forged exclusive agreement with some well-known foreign manufacturers in their respective field of medical devices and supplies.
Today, MCTC has numerous branches in Metro Manila, Cebu City, Davao City, Iloilo City, Lipa City and San Fernando City in Pampanga. A scheme for expanding to all 13 regions of the country is soon to be implemented.
MCTC remains to be a subsidiary of Mercury Group of Companies, Inc.
Mr. Sulpicio A. Batilaran currently serves as MCTC's General Manager.
