Philip Morris Manufacturing & Technology Bologna (PMMTB) is PMI center of excellence for staff training, prototyping and large-scale production of smoke-free tobacco products.

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. Thanks to the skills developed over the years at the Zola Predosa site, in 2014 PMMTB expanded its presence in the Emilia-Romagna region with the new production plant in the industrial area of Crespellano, as a result of an investment of more than 1 billion euros.

As the first plant of its kind in the world, PMMTB is where industrial processes for production of innovative products are defined. The know-how developed internally is exported abroad as a key asset in the conversion phase of the other production subsidiaries of the group, thus extending the perimeter of activation of the manufacturing activity carried out in Italy beyond the borders of the national territory. 

The plant receives raw and semi-finished tobacco to produce tobacco sticks and thanks to the work of over 1,500 people employed, the plant responds to the international demand of the many countries where IQOS platforms are currently marketed.

PMMTB is characterized by high levels of technological innovation and state-of-the-art sustainability practices.
