Way back in 1970, one man's vision and two tugboats started it all
In 1970 Mr Koay Boon Hean observed and acted upon the niche in the marine service industry in Penang, Malaysia, founding the original Syarikat Soon Hock Trading with two tugboats.
1980 saw the business growing to acquire more tugboats; now encompassing the East Malaysia market and by 1985, the Group had become active players in the Indonesian and Thai maritime market.
A decade later, having gained the trust of many strategic local and global partners, the Group steamed ahead full-swing, networking internationally and scalling record high revenues.
By 2000, the group had achieved tremendous growth in bottom-line and continued to acquire marine tankers and new vessels in keeping with the market demand.
Our Company was incorporated in Malaysia under the Act as a private limited company on 14 March 2000 under the name Lingkaran Cerah Sdn Bhd. On 12 June 2003, our Company's name was changed to KBH Capital Sdn Bhd and it was further changed to KBH Marine Industry Sdn Bhd effective from 27th April 2012.
