Welcome to Papastratos, the largest tobacco products company in Greece, the affiliate of Philip Morris International Inc (PMI).
Since 1931 until today, our company is leading the Greek tobacco products market. This is thanks to its talented people, top international and local brands, such as Marlboro and the historic ΑΣΣΟΣ (ASSOS), a unique corporate culture, the state-of-the-art know-how and international experience of PMI, and its long history.
By implementing an investment plan worth more than EUR 700 million since 2003, including infrastructures at the company plant in Aspropyrgos, its people and brands, as well as important social actions and the fight against the illicit trade in cigarettes, Papastratos ensures its dynamic business growth, boosts its competitiveness and provides its employees with opportunities for further career development.
With a history of 85 years in the Greek market, PAPASTRATOS continues to be actively present while supporting the Greek economy and society. In 2016 the PAPASTRATOS emerged as the Most Admired Company in Greece according to the Fortune magazine.
Care for our people:
Our people are a crucial factor for the business success of Papastratos. Through constant investment in employees’ career development, promoting talents and scouting for capable professionals, depending on the needs of the company, providing dynamic career development plans, competitive salaries and benefits, international career and a modern working environment, Papastratos has been recognized as a Great Place to Work by the Great Place to Work®Institute Hellas for three years (2012-2014) and as a Top Employer by the Top Employer Institute (in 2015 and 2016). It also received two golden awards for employees’ development plans from the HR Awards.
As well as for our people, care for the society too: is it good English?
As well as for its people, we also care for the society and the country. A multi-faceted corporate social responsibility program, representing an expenditure of more than EUR 1.5 million through the period 2009 – 2016, aims to provide vulnerable social groups with relief from the economic crisis. In this context we implement programs in collaboration with various NGOs such as Apostoli, Praksis, Desmos and Shedia.
