1977
Business re-direction was started in this year giving focus to company-owned branded products, the first of which was the Babyflo feeding bottle. Subsequently, Philusa dropped the product lines from third party pharmaceutical suppliers. There was a change in business name from Philusa Drug Distributors, Inc. to PHILUSA DISTRIBUTORS, INC. With this development, came the creation of two company-owned brands, namely: Mediplast and Cleene, thus, reinforcing the brand management of Philusa.
