Willem II is a Dutch cigar brand, nowadays mainly of smaller cigars (sigarros). It was once a large cigar factory in Valkenswaard.

The Willem II cigar factories were founded in 1916 by Harry Kersten. This descendant of a family of tobacco processors and traders from Puiflijk previously worked as a volunteer at the cigar factory of the Gebr. Van Best in Valkenswaard.

After 1950, four more branches were established in the region. Around 1970 the company had approximately 2200 employees. After 1970, employment declined as a result of the shrinking market and increasing mechanization.
