About Philip Morris USA

An American Heritage Stretching Back More Than 150 Years
Philip Morris & Co., Ltd. was established in 1847 when the family of Philip Morris opened their first London tobacco shop​ and began making tobacco products that royalty and the working man alike would enjoy.
More than 150 years later, we’re the leading manufacturer of cigarettes in the United States (a position we’ve held since 1983). Headquartered in Richmond, VA, we now produce some of the most well-known brands in the consumer products industry. Read Our History.
