There is another article that Phillip Morris is closing some plant in South Carolina, but I'm not sure which company they are really talking about. Altria is domestic, Phillip Morris is international, but the article says it's Phillip Morris. This corporate split was a bad idea...who is who??
here is why you r confused about PM. It's because there is a USA version and an international version of PM. The international version was spun off from Altria and the USA wasn't. The plant closing is in North Carolina and is a PM USA plant. It was something that had been planned for for a long time.
