B. COMPANY BACKGROUND
Medical Center Trading Corp. began as a modest provider of pharmaceuticals and basic surgical implements to the country's medical and healthcare industries. Rodolfo Landahl, a Filipino of German ancestry, under the name Medical Center Drug Corporation, established it in 1946.
In a few years, the firm was sold to Metro Drug Corp. and thereafter, in April 1970, was acquired by Mercury Drug * 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. Also, the
BMD(Brand Management Department) group is formed to address the growing needs of the industry, attends to product research and development. A Product Manager heads each Department.
Today, MCTC has numerous branches in Metro Manila, Cebu City, Davao City, Iloilo City, Lipa City, San Fernando City, Pampanga, and Urdaneta City in Pangasinan. A scheme for expanding to all 13 regions of the country is soon to be implemented, aside from the Sales Representatives to service hospitals, clinics, and * remain to be a subsidiary of the Mercury Group of Companies, Inc.

Before a company/applicant becomes a registered member, a rigid screening is conducted by HOMLESIAP current officers.
