Philip Morris USA
Philip Morris USA is the tobacco subsidiary of Altria Group. It sells among other things, the Marlboro brand in the U.S.. Philip Morris USA is still a subsidiary of Altria, while Philip Morris International was spun off from Altria in 2008.
Philip Morris USA was split off in 2008 by Philip Morris International, which led to a reduction in production due to the now missing export markets. Philip Morris plans to close the plant in Concord until 2010 and the relocation of the main plant Richmond.
2003, Philip Morris Companies Inc. had changed its name to Altria Group, Inc., but retained 100 % of Philip Morris USA. The name change was interpreted as the termination of the association with tobacco products. 2003 Philip Morris USA moved the seat of New York City to Richmond, Virginia.
Philip Morris USA brands include Marlboro, Virginia Slims, Merit, Parliament, Alpine, Basic, Cambridge, Bristol, Bucks, Chesterfield, Collector's Choice, Commander, English Ovals, Lark, L & M, Benson & Hedges, Players and Saratoga.
