Swiss-Based JT International U.S.A. Plans Raleigh, North Carolina, Headquarters

Swiss-based tobacco company JT International U.S.A. plans to establish operations in Raleigh, North Carolina. The project is expected to create 100 jobs.

The new headquarters, located in One North Hills Tower, is scheduled to open later in the year.

"We are very excited to be joining Raleigh's diverse community. Raleigh is an ideal location for our new headquarters because it is a vibrant and growing city with a top of its class talent pool for recruitment of new employees. We are already hiring in the Raleigh area, and we are excited to open our new office later this year," said General Manager and President Corrado Mautone.

JT International, part of the JTI Group of Companies, sells brands such as LD, Wave, Wings and Export A. The company was formed when its parent company JT Group acquired the non-US operations of R.J. Reynolds.

"It's great to see another international company choose North Carolina for its top-flight workforce, number one business environment and extraordinary quality of life," noted Governor Roy Cooper.

"We are proud to welcome JTI's leadership and headquarters to North Carolina," added Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. "As a leading buyer of North Carolina tobacco, this move to Wake County is a great sign of their long-term interest in working with our growers and will help us further build on this important trade partnership."
