Lane Limited (Lane) is a long-established manufacturer and/or marketer of a wide range of specialty tobacco products including roll-your-own and pipe tobaccos, Dunhill and State Express 555 premium international cigarettes, little cigars and premium Dunhill cigars. Lane was originally established in Germany by the Lane family in 1890. The company moved to New York in 1938. Lane relocated to Tucker, Ga., outside Atlanta, in 1983, where it operates two factories, one specializing in pipe and roll-your-own tobaccos, the other principally manufacturing little cigars. In 1987, Lane was purchased by Rothmans International and subsequently became part of British American Tobacco (BAT) as the result of the global merger of the two companies in 1999. Lane became part of Reynolds American Inc. in 2004.
