General company information - Factsheets
Welcome to Philip Morris GmbH (PMG). Since our founding in 1970, we have experienced constant growth and successfully established ourselves as the leading vendor of tobacco products in Germany. The company is an affiliate of Philip Morris International Inc., which has its operations center Lausanne/Switzerland.
The Philip Morris GmbH corporate headquarters in Munich and production sites in Berlin and Dresden employ approximately 2,400 people nationwide. The production facility in Berlin was opened more than 40 years ago. In 1990, the company acquired what is now f6 Cigarettenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG in Dresden.
Philip Morris GmbH attaches great importance to top-quality working conditions for its employees as well as continued professional development. For its efforts to that end, the company received a “Top Employer Germany” (“Top Arbeitgeber Deutschland”) award for the seventh time in a row in 2016 from the international certification body Top Employers Institute.
Philip Morris GmbH views itself as an active member of society. That is why we have been providing aid and charitable donations for more than 40 years now, especially at our sites in Berlin, Dresden, and Munich. Our social engagement has always been centered on helping people to live their lives better and in a more active manner. In other words: help for self-help. That is why our engagement focusses on the fields of access to education and providing economic opportunities, empowering women as well as disaster relief.
Smoking and Health
Tobacco products, including cigarettes, are dangerous and addictive. There is overwhelming medical and scientific evidence that smoking causes lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema, and other serious diseases.
All tobacco products are addictive. It can be very difficult to quit smoking, but this should not deter smokers who want to quit from trying to do so.
Public health officials have concluded that secondhand smoke from cigarettes causes serious diseases in non-smokers, including lung cancer and heart disease. We believe the public health conclusions on secondhand smoke are sufficient to support smoking restrictions in public places.
Philip Morris International (PMI) supports comprehensive regulation of tobacco products based on the principle of harm reduction.
To be effective, tobacco regulatory policy must be evidence-based, apply to all tobacco products, and should take into account the views of all legitimate stakeholders including public health authorities, government finance authorities, tobacco manufacturers, and other members of the tobacco supply chain. Regulatory policy must consider the potential to trigger adverse consequences which undermine public health objectives, such as increasing the demand for illicit cigarettes.
While we support comprehensive, effective tobacco regulation, we do not support regulation that prevents adults from buying and using tobacco products or that imposes unnecessary impediments to the operation of the legitimate tobacco market. In that regard, we oppose measures such as generic packaging, point of sale display bans, total bans on communications to adult consumers, and bans on the use of all ingredients in tobacco products.
