In addition, MSC has gained distinction as the largest independent custom tin smelter in the world and one of the world's top producers of high purity 4-nines tin. MSC via its smelter in Butterworth, Malaysia has been supplying the world with the Straits refined tin brand which is registered with the London Metal Exchange and Kuala Lumpur Tin Market.
