Our History


Century Pharmaceuticals, Inc. began as a distributor of prescription and non-prescription pharmaceuticals, primarily serving the Indianapolis, Indiana market. Soon afterwards, we began our manufacturing operations, by manufacturing tablets, liquids, and custom healthcare products for pharmacies and hospitals around the Midwest.


When a hospital pharmacist requested that Century manufacture Dakin's Solution®, our mission to provide excellent wound care was born. As pharmacists and healthcare professionals around the country experienced it's effectiveness, the demand for Dakin's Full Strength® and Dakin's Half Strength® naturally grew. 


With the cooperation of wound care professionals, Century developed a diluted Dakin's Solution®, called Di-Dak-Sol®, which was debuted at the Society for the Advancement of Wound Care 2001, in Orlando, FL.


Due to popular demand, Century's president developed another strength of Dakin's®. Dakin's Quarter Strength® is used with enthusiasm by podiatrists, surgeons, and wound care professionals across the United States.


Century Pharmaceuticals, Inc. celebrated it's 50th anniversary. As  fiercely loyal to Indianapolis and customers all over the world as ever, Century stayed confidently looking forward.
