Doing Business With Us
Over the years, we have built an extensive network of business partners and alliances in the healthcare industry, ranging from supply and marketing agreements to product licensing and joint business ventures.
As we enter into new markets, the challenge is for us to expand our network of alliances and business partnerships that share our values and offer potential for the creation of great synergies. The challenge is also for us to enlarge and deepen the basis of trust with our partners, to find more ways in which mutual business benefit becomes a reinforcing element in our partnerships.
Our portfolio consists of more than 350 brands of affordable top-quality prescription, consumer healthcare, and personal care products in all the significant therapeutic categories. Prescription products are promoted by a well-trained and professional marketing field force, the biggest and best trained in the country, while over-the-counter (OTC) healthcare and personal care brands are driven mainly by sustained tri-media advertisements.
Some of our top prescription brands are Vidastat (simvastatin), Lifezar (Losartan K), Combizar (Losartan K +HCTZ), Zegen (Cefuroxime), Levox (Levofloxacin), Glubitor (Glicazide), Glumet (Metformin), Norizec (Glimepiride), Asmalin (Salbutamol), Rimaped (Rifampicin), and Renogen (Epoetin Alpha). On the other hand, some of Unilab’s well-known consumer brands are Ceelin, Enervon, Biogesic, Alaxan, Solmux, Neozep, Diatabs, Tuseran, pH Care, and Myra E.
Unilab develops and markets a wide range of ethical and consumer products in the following therapeutic segments:
Our products are manufactured according to the standards of current good manufacturing practice in a network consisting of five production facilities, namely:
- United Laboratories, Inc. – solids and liquids
- Asian Antibiotics, Inc. – penicillin, cephalosphonin and steroid products
- Amherst Laboratories, Inc. – Solids Plant (EU-GMP certified), and Liquids Plant
- Amherst Parenterals, Inc. – small volume parenterals, large volume parenterals
- Philippine Health Food Manufacturing – nutritionals
Amherst Laboratories, the latest addition to our manufacturing network, is a vast manufacturing complex that sets the standard for the next-generation pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities in the country.
Outside of our manufacturing network, our most significant physical infrastructure is our distribution center—First Pioneer Central Distribution Center. It is one of the biggest single covered structures in the country—3.1 hectares of ground floor area in a seven-hectare site. Four football fields or seven 747 passenger jets can fit into a covered area this large. Equipped with advanced warehouse management system software based on a centralized warehousing concept, this distribution center has increased logistic efficiencies significantly.
