General See Sen Chemical Berhad (See Sen) is the largest manufacturer of sulphuric acid in Malaysia.The company also produces derivatives of sulphur as listed here. The company's manufacturing facilities are located at Pasir Gudang (Johor) and Kemaman (Terengganu) respectively. The Kemaman plant is world-scale and utilizes imported Australian technology.
See Sen was established in 1967 and originally operated out of a site in Larkin Industrial Estate, Johor. Batu Kawan Berhad became the company's principal shareholder in 1983. In 1984, the new management commissioned a new acid plant in Pasir Gudang, Johor and the Larkin operation was eventually sold. The Kemaman plant was started-up in 1997. As with MSCI, the sales and distribution of the company's products are undertaken by Taiko Marketing Sdn. Bhd.

Batu Kawan Berhad owns 61% of shares in See Sen Chemical Berhad. Since its Incorporation in 1965, See Sen Chemical Berhad has been a leading supplier of sulphuric and sulphur-derived products in Malaysia. Till 2016, See Sen Chemical Berhad operated the largest sulphuric acid plant in Malaysia with an annual capacity of 245,000 metric tonnes. Subsequently, the acid business underwent a restructuring in 2017, which resulted in the downscaling of its sulphuric acid operations to an annual production capacity of 31,000 metric tonnes.Presently, the Company’s operations are based at three manufacturing facilities located in Kemaman, Terengganu; Pasir Gudang, Johor and Sendayan, Negeri Sembilan.
News May 22, 2000 - Malaysia has prioritised investigations into a recent chemical leak in Terengganu, said an official from the Department of Safety and Health.  The leak at See Sen Chemical's sulphuric acid plant in Teluk Kalong, caused toxic sulphur dioxide fumes to be emitted earlier this month. Inhalation of the fumes resulted in 12 passersby receiving outpatient treatment for dizziness and nausea.  According to the environment impact assessment (EIA) unit, the leak was caused by a technical hitch in the startup procedure. See Sen immediately halted the plant's operations, but declined to comment.  The EIA unit has ordered See Sens Chemical to install detection equipment to monitor the sulphur dioxide emissions from the plant. The EIA will record these emissions.  The EIA unit said it is not the first time such an accident had happened, but declined to elaborate.
