PMMTB (previously Intertaba) became a PMI affiliate in 1963. Over the years, the company, cooperating with PMI, has built a solid expertise in prototyping and industrializing technologically advanced cigarette filters. With its offices and factory based in Zola Predosa, near Bologna, PMMTB is a recognized Center of Excellence for our innovative cigarette filter production process.
PMMTB has increased its presence in the Emilia-Romagna region, with the opening in 2016 of a new factory in the industrial area of Crespellano, Valsamoggia. This was the first of PMI’s factories dedicated to large-scale production of the tobacco elements used in our smoke-free products, including HEETS and HeatSticks for the IQOS tobacco heating system.
The factory, which is able to produce 30 billion HEETS and HeatSticks annually, helps to serve the international demand of countries where IQOS is sold.
