PT PAL was established in 1939 as Marine Establishment (ME) by the Dutch East Indies government. During the Japanese occupation, ME was renamed as Kaigun SE 2124.[2] After Indonesia gained independence, the company was nationalized with the company name changed from ME to PAL.[3]

On April 15, 1980, the company's status was changed from a Public Company (Perusahaan Umum) to a Limited Company (Perseroan Terbatas) according to notary deed No.12 of Hadi Moentoro, SH.[1]

The Philippine Navy ordered its first landing platform/dock-type ship with the BRP Tarlac (LD-601) being made by PT PAL on June 5, 2015,[4] with the ship commissioned into service on June 1, 2016.[5] The contract was around $USD92 million.[6]

On September 29, 2016, PT PAL launched the second Strategic Sealift Vessel (SSV) known as BRP Davao del Sur (LD-602) for the Philippine Navy.[7][8]

On February 23, 2017, PT PAL has signed an agreement with two UAE shipbuilding companies Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) and the International Global Group (IGG) in order to boost its presence in the Middle East with the agreement during the 2017 IDEX convention.[9]

On April 15, 2017, an agreement was signed between DCNS and PT PAL to collaborate on building new submarines, corvettes and frigates.[10]

On July 14, 2017, PT PAL has reported that other countries in Africa and Asia have sought orders to create ships for their navies, among them Malaysia, Nigeria, Senegal, Guinea-Bissau and Gabon.[11]

A MoU agreement was signed between PT PAL and Boustead Naval Shipyard to have the Malaysian Navy's first LPD ship constructed in Surabaya.[12]

Among the orders made by the African countries included Nigeria's order for one SSV; Senegal for one LPD ship along with two Clurit class fast attack craft, KCR-35 meter ships and three KCR-60 meter ships and Guyana Bissau and Gabon for one KCR-60 meter ship each.[6]
