Imperial Tobacco Group PLC has a new name: Imperial Brands PLC.
Imperial Brands, a FTSE 100 company headquartered in Bristol in the UK, is the parent company of a dynamic international business specialising in tobacco and non-tobacco brands.
Our name has changed but our focus remains exactly the same: maximising opportunities for our brands and generating sustainable returns for our shareholders.
The new PLC name reflects the breadth of our brands focus across five distinct entities: Imperial Tobacco, Tabacalera, ITG Brands, Fontem Ventures and Logista.
Our core business is built around a tobacco portfolio that offers a comprehensive range of cigarettes, fine cut and smokeless tobaccos, papers and cigars.
Our tobacco brands are sold in 160 markets worldwide, including the USA where we have a significant presence through ITG Brands.
Through our Fontem Ventures business, we're also developing a portfolio of brands beyond tobacco, including the e-vapour brand blu.
Adding to the breadth of our activities is Logista, one of the largest logistics businesses in Europe.
Through consistent delivery of our strategy we have built a long track record of creating sustainable value for our shareholders.
We’re proud of our long history and we’re excited about the future. The strength of our brands and the talents of our people are a winning combination for Imperial Brands to generate quality sustainable growth in the years ahead.
