The key to our success is the quality of our people
Pakistan Tobacco Company Limited was incorporated in 1947 immediately after partition, when it took over the business of the Imperial Tobacco Company of India which had been operational in the subcontinent since 1905.
The company prides itself in being the first multi-national company to begin its operations in Pakistan. Our parent company, British American Tobacco has been in business for over 100 years now with a presence in over 180 countries. The Group has built an international reputation for making and marketing high quality brands for the millions of informed adults who choose to consume tobacco.
From being just a single factory operation to a company which is involved in every aspect of cigarette production, from crop to consumer, we have evolved into one of the leading corporations in Pakistan. We run two state of the art factories and employ more than 1,700 people while indirectly providing livelihoods to more than a million people who are involved in various aspects of the business. We are market leaders and contribute more than Rs. 30 billion in excise duties and taxes to the Government. Our strategy reflects our vision, being the champions of growth, productivity, responsibility and a winning organization.
Our brands encompass our values and we boast a diversified portfolio catering to the different tastes and preferences of the entire tobacco market. By offering products that are superior in quality, driven by global standards, we meet and exceed the expectations of our consumers.
We, as a company, work towards broader goals beyond the benefit of the shareholders and demonstrate support for communities, high standards of ethical behaviour and greater transparency and accountability. We are committed to continuous improvement and to keeping an open mind. We have learnt that companies can rarely act alone; almost all our contributions to society involve working constructively with others and by engaging and listening to our stakeholders. By matching our words with our actions, we aim to demonstrate the behaviour of a responsive and responsible tobacco company.
