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. This led to us being the first country outside the USA to introduce Ploom – an electronic device where tobacco is heated, not burned.
Our business is driven by our people. We currently employ around 380 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)
JTI markets 20 brand families incorporating more than 100 products
