British American Tobacco Group’s centenary year was celebrated in 2002. In South Africa, however, we celebrated our 100 years of excellence in 2004.
At about the same time that a tobacco trade war was intensifying between British tobacco companies in the United Kingdom and the giant American Tobacco Company (ATC) in the United States of America, a similar battle was reaching its climax in South Africa. ATC had expanded its business to South Africa in 1891 and three years later three brothers – David, Albert and Hitler Holt – who had arrived in South Africa from England, also opened a cigarette factory in collaboration with W.D & H.O Wills of Bristol, England, to compete against the American company.
