JTI Austria is a leading tobacco company in Austria, headquartered in Vienna.
We are a truly global Company, with a rich local history that can be traced back as far as the Habsburg emperor Joseph II, who founded the "Österreichische Tabakregie" (Austrian Tobacco Monopoly) in the 18th century. Our unique heritage drives our unique approach to doing business. Thanks to our European roots and our Japanese heritage, we are not only dynamic and creative, but also precise, quality-driven and thinking about the long term. In addition to making some of the world's best-known traditional products, we challenge ourselves to innovate. The launch of Logic Curv led us to being the first leading tobacco company to introduce an e-cigarette in Austria.
Our business is driven by our people. We currently employ more than 400 people in our Vienna office, in the field, in our Research & Development laboratory Ökolab and in the independent distributor unit tobaccoland.
The JTI field staff was voted no. 1 in Austria by our trading partners (marketagent survey 2014)
