It has a tobacco leaf processing plant in Rosario de Lerma (Salta) and a national tobacco warehouse in Perico (Jujuy), besides tobacco storage centers in these two last locations.

Philip Morris International bought a controlling interest of Massalin & Celasco, as the company was known, in 1965. In 1980, Massalin & Celasco merged with two other cigarette manufacturers to form Massalin Particulares. Today, we are the leading tobacco company in Argentina, and we employ approximately 2,500 people in seven locations around the country.

We operate three manufacturing facilities, and we buy tobacco from five provinces and over 7,400 tobacco growers. We support many social programs in Argentina aimed at making a difference in the local communities where we operate. This includes efforts to prevent child labor in tobacco growing and to enhance the quality of, and access to, education.
