Welcome to Philip Morris Korea, which was established as an affiliate of Philip Morris International in 1989.
Philip Morris Korea sells domestically produced high-quality tobacco products including the world-famous brands Marlboro, Parliament, Virginia S., and Lark for adult smokers in Korea.
In October 2002, we established our state-of-the-art factory in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do, which was the first tobacco manufacturing facility built by a multinational tobacco company in Korea. Driven by the continuous growth and by investing about 200 billion won, our new factory is equipped a primary processing line, increasing our total annual production capacity to 40 billion cigarettes.
