As a leading basic and specialty chemical company in Indonesia, PT LAUTAN LUAS Tbk ("the Company" or "Lautan Luas") has been serving its customers for more than sixty years by providing high quality products and services. The Company was established on 13 July 1951 as Persekutuan Andil Maskapai Dagang dan Industri "Lim Teck Lee" (Indonesia), also known as NV Lim Teck Lee (Indonesia) Coy. Ltd. It began as an importer and distributor of basic chemicals for the batik and food industries in Indonesia. In 1965, the Company changed its name to PT Lautan Luas.

Lautan Luas established Indonesia's first privately owned sulfuric acid production plant in 1969, signaling its commitment to quality manufacturing. Then in the 1970s, the Company seized on the opportunity offered by the country's rapid industrialization, and expanded its distribution and manufacturing capabilities with a focus on specialty chemicals. Lautan Luas currently operates sixteen manufacturing facilities in Indonesia, two in China, and a water treatment chemical manufacturing plant in Vietnam.
Lautan Luas entered the support & services business segment in 1995 with the establishment of PT Lautan Jasaindo providing laboratory services and solutions for corporate customers in the electroplating, leather, paper, textile, and water treatment industries. Since then, the Company has expanded its offerings to include a highly integrated end-to-end logistics and supply chain business, and comprehensive water treatment and information technology solutions. Our customer requirements drive the development of this ever-expanding range of tailored services and solutions.
