Longs, South Carolina

In the sleepy, sunbaked town of Longs, South Carolina, in stark contrast to the beach life and relaxing vacationers, is the bustling international headquarters of Laudisi Enterprises. It's the main location for customer service, shipping, web development, estate pipes and restoration, distribution, marketing and advertising, and tobacco blending and manufacturing. The entire team is poised for one defining purpose: to deliver quality pipes, tobaccos and accessories to discerning smokers.

Dublin, Ireland

Our Dublin operation is the home of Smokingpipes Europe and the Peterson Pipe Company. The Irish team is responsible for merchandising, marketing, and customer service in support of our Europe-focused website, delivering a native shopping experience in multiple languages, while the Peterson factory continues to manufacture pipes with unparalleled silverwork, innovative system engineering, proprietary manufacturing techniques, and a company culture steeped in the deep Irish history of the brand.

Chongqing, China

Our satellite office in Chongqing, China offers customer service support for our Chinese/Mandarin language customers; from suggesting pipes to suit a customer's tastes to helping process orders and even generating Chinese content for the blog, our representatives Andrew and Eric work diligently to provide the same expert and passionate experiences we offer here in the states.

Tokyo, Japan

Situated in Tokyo, our Japanese satellite office is led by Ryota Shimizu. Ryota not only provides customer support for Japanese language customers but maintains many of our important connections within the country as well. He helps customers with processing orders, picking out pipes, and offering assistance navigating the site, while also producing regular Japanese newsletters and social media posts, and checking up with Japanese pipe makers from time to time.

Web Development

While our industry has always been pipes and tobacco, at our hearts we are a tech company. From creating our own proprietary software to our astounding front end, the Web Development team works to create amazing experiences for our customers and for our employees as well. We are both the company and the client; we don't just build tools, we use our creations to do more, faster every single day.

Marketing & Advertising

More than just an in-house department, our Marketing team combines thorough knowledge of pipes and pipe tobacco with modern technologies to deliver amazing experiences. Whether it's creating stunning print ads for publications like Pipes & Tobaccos Magazine, tracking the progress of our marketing campaigns with detailed analytics, or connecting with our customers in real-time through social media, we shape our brands from the ground up and are constantly sharpening our skills to make our next efforts better than our last.

Restoration & Estates

Led by our own resident pipe maker Adam Davidson, our talented restoration team is responsible for cleaning and restoring every estate pipe that appears on Smokingpipes.com. From simple, routine sanitizing to more complex, full-blown repairs, we bring hundreds of forgotten pieces of history back to life each week — following a meticulous process we've honed and perfected over the years. When you purchase an estate pipe from us, you can immediately recognize the quality, the care, and the passion we pour into each and every piece.

Distribution

Laudisi Distribution Group, or LDG, is the exclusive US distributor of Savinelli pipes, tobacco, and accessories, as well as the go-to guys for Cornell & Diehl, G.L. Pease, Two Friends, Castello, Briarworks Tobacco, Planta, and Low Country pipe tobaccos. Our team of trained sales experts use their knowledge of pipes, pipe tobacco, and the greater industry to help retailers all across the country achieve their goals. We travel all over to visit our clients in house and help curate their inventory to drive sales and advance the pipe smoking hobby as a whole.

Shipping

Here at Laudisi Enterprises, we pride ourselves on our ability to get packages and orders out to our clients and customers as quickly and efficiently as possible. To make this happen, we rely on our seasoned shipping team. While high-speed workflow and low error rates are the status quo, we've also taken steps to reduce our carbon footprint by reusing packing materials, recycling where we can, and following a greener approach to our everyday process.

Tobacco Blending & Manufacturing

Cornell & Diehl is one of the largest manufacturers of high quality, boutique pipe tobacco in the country. From delicious aromatics like Autumn Evening to minimalist Virginia-Perique mixtures like Bayou Morning, our passionate team blends it all by hand right here in South Carolina. Our range of blends is celebrated the world over, and we pride ourselves in delivering a natural, boutique product people can stand by. We also produce all of the blends in the well-respected G.L. Pease, Castello, Captain Earle's, Briarworks, and Two Friends pipe tobacco lines.

Information Technology

The backbone of everything we do here at Laudisi, our IT department is responsible for configuring, managing, troubleshooting, monitoring, and fixing every aspect of our computer network and IT infrastructure. While to others it may seem like they're just surfing the web and fixing printers, behind the scenes our team has their hands on everything from our physical and cyber security systems to our myriad databases and servers, and a whole lot in between.

Tokyo, Japan

Situated in Tokyo, our Japanese satellite office is led by Ryota Shimizu.
