Incorporated in 1946, Heng Seng & Company (HSC) began as a trading company in British Malaya. It has traded a variety of everyday goods such as toothpastes, toothbrushes, sundry goods, garments, sewing machines, stoves, radios, motorcycles and rubber estates.
Mr. Tan Thiam Hawk, our late founder, first learnt of Liquified Petroleum Gas or LPG and its uses when he was studying in a boarding school in Singapore. Thus, shortly after HSC became operational, Mr. Tan wrote a letter to Shell to express his interest in distributing LPG in British Malaya. The rest is history. HSC is today the first and the oldest LPG distribution company in Malaysia.
Presently, HSC is the distributor for MYGAZ and Petron covering the East Coast while Solar Gas covers the whole of Semenanjung Malaysia. For decades, we have established and maintained a significant presence in the East Coast of Malaysia, where our current market share in Kelantan and Terengganu stands at 43% and 16% respectively. In Kota Bharu, the capital of Kelantan, HSC remains a market leader as we are supplying 85% of the LPG needs in the city.
Looking ahead, we aspire to be one of the leading LPG distribution and logistics corporations in Malaysia. In addition, we have received high demands to expand our trading/ distribution and logistics of various goods ie: Limestone, diesel, FMCG, Sugars, cooking oil and many more. By 2023, we aim to achieve the following:
