Newman is headquartered in an iconic 109-year-old cigar factory in teh Ybor City National Historic Landmark District of Tampa, Florida. At this factory, known as “El Reloj”, J.C. Newman rolls premium cigars both by hand and by hand-operated, antique cigar machines.
The J.C. Newman PENSA cigar factory is the second largest in Nicaragua and is where Brick House, Perla del Mar, El Baton, and Quorum cigars are hand-rolled. J.C. Newman’s Diamond Crown, MAXIMUS, Julius Caesar, and Black Diamond cigars are handmade by Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic. With its longtime partners the Arturo Fuente Family, the Newmans founded the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, which supports low-income families in the Dominican Republic with education, health care, vocational training, and clean water.
