The American Snuff Company, formerly Conwood Sales Company LLC,[1] is a division of Reynolds American, a major tobacco company. The American Snuff Company was acquired by Reynolds American in mid-2006 for $3.5 billion in cash. It now generates nearly 7% of Reynolds American's annual revenue.[2] The current CEO of the American Snuff Company is Randall M. "Mick" Spach.[3]

The American Snuff Company, or Conwood LLC, was formally founded around 1900, but had been operating since shortly after the Revolutionary war as a small snuff mill.[4] From 1986 to 2006, Conwood was owned by the Pritzker family of Chicago. When Reynolds American acquired Conwood, Reynolds subsidiary Lane Limited was merged into Conwood. The name American Snuff Company was assumed in 2010.

American Snuff Company makes a variety of smokeless tobacco products. The company produces dipping tobacco or moist snuff, chewing tobacco in the forms of loose-leaf, plug, and twist, and dry snuff.
