British American Tobacco Careers & Info

British American Tobacco Overview

British American Tobacco, headquartered in London, is the second largest tobacco company in the world in terms of its sales. The company's signature brands include Lucky Strike, Pall Mall, Kool and Benson & Hedges. However, British American Tobacco does not own the rights to these brands in every country where they're marketed. In 2010, British American Tobacco sold over 708 billion cigarettes in over 180 countries.

The company was formed in 1902 as a joint venture between the American Tobacco Company and the UK's Imperial Tobacco Company. The two founding companies agreed not to compete with one another within their own national boundaries and to export businesses and overseas subsidiaries to the new joint venture. In 1911, the American Tobacco Company divested its interest in British American Tobacco; the Imperial Tobacco Company did not follow suit until the 1980s.
