Welcome to the affiliates of Philip Morris International (PMI) in Poland, which is the largest manufacturer and employer in the tobacco market. We have a strong portfolio of brands including Marlboro, L&M, Chesterfield and RGD. The history of PMI in Poland began in 1973 when the company signed a licensing agreement with a state-owned tobacco company Zakłady Przemysłu Tytoniowego w Krakowie. In 1996, PMI acquired part of its shares from the State Treasury. The company was renamed Philip Morris Polska S.A. in 1998.
Today, there are four legal entities of PMI in Poland, employing more than 3000 people in total in the company’s factory and shared service center in Krakow, in Lezajsk, Warsaw and our distribution centers across the country. Our SSC provides specialized financial, human resources, information technology and procurement services to PMI affiliates in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Over the past several years, PMI has invested more than $700 million in Poland, mainly for the modernization of our manufacturing facilities and the development of our organization and employees. It is of the utmost importance for us to act with integrity and in compliance with all applicable rules and regulations. We are and wish to remain an important player in the Polish economy and society, as well as one of the best Polish employers and a responsible manufacturer of high quality tobacco products.
