The fifth-largest cigarette company in the world comes from England, based in Bristol. This company was named Imperial Brands and was previously named Imperial Tobacco Group PLC.
Imperial Brands is a combination of 13 tobacco and tobacco companies in the UK in 1901. One year later, the company joined American Tobacco and became a British American Tobacco (BAT) company.
In 1980, BAT separated its company from Imperial Brands. Even so, some trademarks or trademarks owned by Imperial Brands in the UK are still BAT properties outside Europe.
Imperial brands have continued to acquire other cigarette companies since 1997. Not only cigarettes, but also producers of cigarette elements such as rolled paper (Rizla), processed tobacco products (Reemtsma Cigarettenfabriken GmbH), and tobacco roll (Baelen Group).
Imperial Brands products, such as West, Davidoff, and Golden Virginia are sold in 160 countries. Noted in 2017, the company controls 3.7% of the global market and is the largest cigarette producer in the world.
