The Vitriol Works, locally known as the 'Chem', manufactured sulphuric acid at premises located at the end of Malpas Street. The works, owned by Cwmbran Chemical Co., opened in the 1860s. It became part of ICI in the 1920s but closed down around 1930. The buildings were demolished in the late 1950s.
