With the desire to continue serving more and more Filipinos with quality medical products, Medical Depot expanded its strategic branches from 24 stores in 2021 to 38 stores to date.
This allowed the company to widen its geographic footprint to cover 34 cities within Luzon.
Medical Depot is also set to establish its presence in the southern part of the country toward the end of the year.
“It has always been our mission to bring quality medical products to our countrymen and to ensure that we are able to service the increasing medical needs of Filipino families in various communities. Our expansion plan that we rolled out is a testament to this mission and we’re glad that we’re on track to open our 40th store by this June,” said Rudy Medina, chairman of Medical Depot.
With at least 12 more new stores set to open until the end of the year, Medical Depot has signed a partnership with Union Bank to strengthen its financial capacity in fulfilling its goal of having 200 stores by 2025.
This will likewise support its plan to open its first ever operating and production hub in Mindanao which will bring its thousands of quality medical products to the southern parts of the country.
In addition to the expanded locations, Medical Depot is also investing in research and development to increase its available items from 5,000 to 10,000 different products and supplies that will cater to various medical demands.
Medical Depot traces its humble beginnings in 1991 with just one branch located in Bambang, Manila and with only three sales personnel.
“Medical Depot’s legacy is really about helping the country by addressing the medical needs of our fellowmen with reasonably priced, top-quality medical products. Our efforts to reach more Filipinos by opening new strategic branches across the country in the last 6 months and working to open our hub in the Mindanao region speaks for this and this is truly a milestone for the company,” said Baby Medina, vice chairman of Medical Depot.
