Our History

The history and achievements of Sampoerna is inseparable from the long history of the Sampoerna family who founded this company 1913.

As one of the leading tobacco manufacturers in Indonesia, we are proud of our traditions and Three Hands Philosophy as the base of our success today and in the future.












Liem Seeng Tee began his business by producing and selling Hand-Rolled Kretek Cigarettes (SKT) at his home in Surabaya. His small business was among the first to manufacture and market SKT, under the brand Dji Sam Soe.


With his business firmly established, Liem Seeng Tee then formed a company under the name Sampoerna and moved both his family and factory to a building complex in Surabaya, which was named “Taman Sampoerna.” The facility still produces Sampoerna’s Hand-Rolled Kretek Cigarettes.

Sampoerna’s operation was then passed on to the second generation of the family, Aga Sampoerna, who focused on the production of SKT through Sampoerna Hijau, which is known as Sampoerna Kretek today.


Sampoerna launched its SKM product, Sampoerna A, a Machine-Made Kretek Cigarettes.


Sampoerna became a public company, establishing a modern corporate structure and embarking on a period of investment and expansion.


With its business success, Sampoerna drew the interest of Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI). This led to PT Philip Morris Indonesia (PMID), a subsidiary of PMI, acquiring majority ownership of Sampoerna in May 2005.
