Welcome to Philip Morris Limited, Philip Morris International's affiliate in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The history of our business in the U.K. dates back to 1847 when Mr. Philip Morris opened a tobacco shop on London's Bond Street. In doing so, he laid the foundation for what is now the leading international tobacco company in the world.
Philip Morris Limited was first incorporated in 1950, but it was not until recently that we opened affiliate offices in the U.K. and Ireland. Today, we are based in London and Dublin and are responsible for the sale and merchandising of Philip Morris International brands, including Marlboro,Chesterfield, and L&M, employing approximately 300 people throughout the U.K. and Ireland. In June 2014, we acquired Nicocigs Ltd, a company that was formed in 2008. Today, it is one of the leading e-cigarette businesses in the U.K. and has a portfolio of brands including Nicocig, Vivid, and MESH.
