Straits Perkasa Services Sdn Bhd is a wholly-owned Malaysian firm. Our staff and shareholders are made up of very experienced individuals who have been in the Marine and Shipping industry for decades. Our Principal shareholder is the owner and operator of Straits Cruise Services Sdn Bhd and Vigormax Sdn Bhd, a company which builds pilot boats, yachts and work boats with the technical backing from an Australian firm.
Straits Cruise Services Sdn Bhd was incorporated in the early 1980s to provide mooring and pilot boat services. In 1984 it was awarded a contract by Johor Port Authority (JPA) to provide mooring and wharf cleaning operations. At the same time it also secured a contract to provide pilot boat services to the JPA until 1997.
Straits Cruise Services Sdn Bhd later ventured into the harbour-tug boat business under the name of Sang MuaraSdnBhd, a joint venture with Sembawang Maritime & Logistics, Singapore.
In 2000 April, Straits Perkasa Services Sdn Bhd was awarded its first mooring service contract from Johor Port Authority. Later on, Johor Port’s pilot boats and tug boats contracts were also awarded to our company by Johor Port Authority.
