Philip Morris International (PMI) has a significant presence in Switzerland, employing more than 3,000 people. Our history in Switzerland dates back to 1957 when we signed an agreement with the Neuchâtel-based Fabriques de Tabac Réunies to produce the first Marlboro cigarettes manufactured outside the United States. In 1963, PMI acquired Fabriques de Tabac Réunies, and today, this factory is one of PMI’s most important manufacturing facilities, employing more than 400 people. The factory produces cigarettes for both the domestic Swiss market and for export to more than 40 countries around the world.
