Labuan Shipyard & Engineering Sdn Bhd (LSE), a subsidiary of Realmild (M) Sdn Bhd, was incorporated on 26 September 2005 and took over the facilities, operations and all business activities of Sabah Shipyard Sdn. Bhd.
The yard itself had been in existence since 1972 and had built up an extensive and proven track record in oil and gas engineering and fabrication, shipbuilding, ship repair and construction of power barges. LSE is also actively involved in the refitting, modernization and scheduled maintenance of naval crafts.
Labuan Shipyard’s main operations are located in the Federal Territory of Labuan, Malaysia, an idyllic island lying in the opening of the Brunei bay at 5°18’ North and 115°15’ East.
In terms of accessibility, Labuan is strategically located within international and shipping and air routes between the Indian and Pacific Ocean. Sea transport and import/export of goods are well served by Labuan Liberty Port, one of the best deepwater ports in the East Malaysian region. By air, Labuan is readily accessible to international destinations via Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu. Regular ferry services are also available between Labuan and mainland Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei.
