“The history of Unilab is a story of passage, of renewal, and progress. It is a story of constant building and progress—construction, deconstruction. This is what keeps us a united family.”
Jocelyn Campos Hess
Chairman of the Board
The Unilab story began in post-war Manila when two friends Jose Y. Campos and Mariano K. Tan opened a small corner-street drugstore. United Drug, the name they gave it, became known as the only drugstore that didn't turn away anyone empty handed. Going above and beyond the call of duty to serve its customers became its hallmark and propelled Unilab to become the top pharmaceutical company in the Philippines.
Unilab was the first among local companies to go into industrial-scale pharmaceutical manufacturing. By 1959 it had a robust nationwide distribution and sales network. The company has also consistently maintained a 20-percent market share, with many of its brands becoming the most trusted household names and leading in their therapeutic categories. Today, Unilab has affiliates in 10 countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
The spirit of genuine concern to make the lives of people better by providing quality products and services drives the Unilab vision to be the best healthcare provider in Asia.
