The company is an affiliate of Philip Morris International (PMI) and has approximately 380 employees in Malaysia today. In 1968, PMI entered the Malaysian market with the sale and distribution of the Marlboro cigarette brand. Since then, the portfolio has expanded to include L&M, ChesterfieldSampoerna A and Bond Street. PMM also operates a cast leaf plant in Seremban. This 100 percent export facility is PMI’s largest in the world.

In 2016, PMI announced the decision to build its future on smoke-free products, which are a much better choice than cigarette smoking. In Malaysia, the first of these products, a tobacco heating system under the IQOS brand, is already available, as well as in many other markets around the world.

A smoke-free future

PMI is a leading international tobacco company and we’ve made a dramatic decision. We’re building our future on smoke-free products that are a much better choice than continued smoking.

Through it all, we will rely on our strength in building great brands, in innovating and inventing, and in surpassing consumer expectations. Our company has invested over USD >12.5 billion in scientific research and development of better alternatives to cigarettes.

Tobacco harm reduction

Alongside government efforts to prevent initiation of tobacco use and encouraging smokers to quit, a growing number of public health authorities and experts now believe that giving smokers access to better alternatives can be a major benefit to public health. Their approach is often referred to as tobacco harm reduction.

Tobacco harm reduction can play a role for public health if new products are developed that meet two conditions. First, they need to present less risk than continued cigarette use. Second, they should be satisfying so that current smokers completely switch to them.
