Welcome to Massalin Particulares S.R.L, Philip Morris International affiliate in Argentina. The history of Massalin Particulares goes back to 1900, when the company, then known as "La Argentina", started manufacturing tobacco products, including the brands Arizona and Colorado.
Philip Morris International bought the biggest share of “Massalin & Celasco”, as the company became known in 1965. In 1980, Massalin & Celasco merged with other two tobacco manufacturers and became Massalin Particulares. Currently we are the leading tobacco company in Argentina and we have around 2,500 employees in six locations.
We operate two manufacturing plants and we purchase tobacco in five provinces from more than 5,700 tobacco producers.
Amid our commitment to the country and its people, we support social programs which aim at making a significant contribution in those locations where we operate, through campaigns oriented to child labor prevention in tobacco farming in the provinces of Salta, Jujuy and Misiones. Apart from this, with the idea of collaborating in improving both quality and access to education, we develop formal training and trade and crafts programs in the abovementioned provinces, also including the provinces of Corrientes and Buenos Aires.
As part of our development process in Argentina, in 2015 we renovated our institutional image to underscore our values of leadership, historical background, innovation and dynamism. These values are embodied in the company´s market share, the quality of its products, its historical presence in different parts of the country, its commitment to the communities with which it interacts and its clear vision of the future lying ahead.
