BHIC has a proven track record in constructing high-end, powerful naval vessels for the RMN such as the Littoral Combat Ships (an ongoing project), new Generation Patrol Vessels, and undertaking MRO works for RMN's armada which also includes the Prime Minister’s Class Scorpene submarines. In addition, BHIC is also capable of building a range of commercial vessels including anchor handling tugboats (AHTS), offshore support vessels (OSV), passenger vessels, tankers and barges.

BHIC and its associates owned three shipyards located along the strategic and busy waterway of the Straits of Malacca on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia and operates one government owned shipyard in Sabah.
