Welcome to Philip Morris International's (PMI) affiliates in Poland. We are the leading tobacco company in the country, manufacturing three of the ten best-selling cigarette brands in the Polish market. However, we decided to be far more than a leading cigarette company. We’re building PMI’s future on smoke-free products, such as IQOS, that are a much better choice than cigarette smoking.
The history of PMI's brands in Poland began in 1973 when PMI signed a licensing agreement with Zakłady Przemysłu Tytoniowego w Krakowie (ZPTK) to produce Marlboro. In 1996, PMI acquired shares of ZPTK from the State Treasury, and the company was renamed Philip Morris Polska S.A. in 1998.

IQOS, Marlboro, L&M, Chesterfield
Today we employ more than 3,000 people in the company’s factory and offices in Krakow, Warsaw, Lezajsk, and in our distribution centers across the country. Over the past several years, we have invested more than USD 700 million in the modernization of our manufacturing center and development of our organization and employees. That is why now we have one of the most modern PMI factories in Europe.
In 2005, PMI Service Center Europe (PMI SCE) was established in Krakow, which provides specialized financial, human resources, information technology, and procurement services for PMI affiliates in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
It is of the utmost importance for us to act with integrity, social responsibility, and in compliance with all applicable rules and regulations.
