Our Brands


“I am always impressed with the customer service provided by ICT. Whenever I suggest or recommend something, they are always quick to accommodate. They respond to questions immediately and are very quick to resolve any issues. I have had the pleasure of working with many different departments. Shargio is a great person with a mind for business. Malika is always so friendly when working with me on invoices. Darrell is great in putting through my orders and staying on top of the new brands and promotions, (I love his colorful emails). Barb is the face on the street and she represents ITC with professionalism and kindness. Everyone in the company represents what a manufacturer should be.”

“Just wanted to let you know, it’s great having Inter-Continental Trading in our corner supplying us with their line of tobacco products and accessories. The growth and success of my business has depended on the advice of what products to carry by their highly knowledgeable and personable staff. At Tobacco Express Depot, we have run the gamut from ordering OHM tobacco, 752 tobacco, Shargio filtered cigars and tubes, and yet still look forward to ICT developing new and exciting products! I truly believe that Inter-Continental Trading has me and my team in their best interest when it comes to supplying me the right product, at the right price. Way to go Inter-Continental!”

- Bob Fuller, President Tobacco Express Depot, FL
“Thank you for all that you guys do for us. Your customer service is top notch and Syed always goes above and beyond to help! When we started with ICT, we carried only one size of OHM tobacco. Now we carry almost the entire line! Since then we added the Shargio tubes and have great success with them as well. We look forward to many more years of success and growth together.”

- Louis Valentine Wigley & Culp, MS
“Barb has been coming to our store regularly for 2 years. And finally, in October of 2015, I decided to become a partner with ICT brands. At first, it was OHM tobacco in one size, but has quickly grown to the full OHM line, 752, Shargio tubes and now the new Au Naturall’e. We also decided to have some fun around the holidays with an ICT Christmas tree! I’m happy to say I have a great partnership with ICT!”

- Dawn Miller Smoking Joe’s Discount Tobacco, OH
“I have been working with Inter-Continental Trading for over 5 years now and I wanted to take a moment to write and say how happy we are with our experience. We currently carry OHM Tobacco, along with the Shargio tubes in over 13 of our stores and it has become one of our best sellers. As a buyer for Russell Oil, I work with many different suppliers and the professionalism of your staff has made my job a little easier. Keep up the good work!”

- Terry Stevens, Buyer Russell Oil Company, IL
