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 1998 and has affiliate offices in London, with a branch office in Ireland. In March 2017 we fully integrated our cigarette, heated tobacco, and e-cigarette (e-vapor) businesses to improve availability and boost adoption of the our e-vapor brands, including Vivid, Nicocig and MESH, as well as to prepare for the nationwide roll-out of our heated tobacco product IQOS. The integration represents another important step in our commitment to a smoke-free future.
As of July 2017, the sales teams, supply chain, and marketing of Nicocigs Limited will be fully integrated into PM Limited (UK and Ireland), thereby creating a single multi-category business.
