Today, we are able to look back on 251 years of company history and are proud to say that our company is one of the oldest companies still in existence in Germany. Since the year 1999, Joh. W. von Eicken has been at the helm with his son Marc (8th generation, * 1970).
As one of the few independent medium-sized tobacco producers in Germany, we employ roughly 480 people domestically and supply more than 120 countries with high-quality tobacco products.
Eicken is part of a leading group of independent cigarette exporters on the international markets. In terms of other tobacco specialities including cigars, pipe tobacco and fine-cut, the company Von Eicken GmbH is, as a traditional German company, one of the leading manufacturers in the market.
In markets spanning the US, France, Asia and the Middle East, our products are distributed via our own distribution companies and, in smaller markets, thanks to qualified importers.
