stockpilers
Explanation:
acopiar is to stockpile

From first link:

An interesting aspect is the continued operation of the local Sarajevo Tobacco Factory. It's a mile from the front line and the scene of sniper attacks, but it receives priority electricity, and has been able to produce 5 million cigarettes a month. A factory official said, "The tobacco stockpile (traditionally maintained at high levels for flavor consistency) is a state secret. We hope to maintain production through to the end of the war." The factory was licensed by Philip Morris to produce Marlboros, but with the lack of imports--or paper for other brand labels--the factory simply turns inside-out the Marlboro packaging.
