Dry Dock Association Elects Massa President
Alfred C. Bruggemann, outgoing president of the New York and New Jersey Dry Dock Association, has announced the election of Robert L. Massa as president for the new term. Mr. Massa was born and educated on Staten Island, N.Y., and attended Wagner College and Rutgers University.
After serving his ship repair apprenticeship at Bethlehem Steel Corporation, he worked for Foster Engineering Corp.
For the past 23 years, Mr.
Massa has been with Coastal Dry Dock & Repair Corporation, which operates in the former Brooklyn Navy Yard. He has been in charge of estimating repairs, and purchasing, and became vice president in 1966. On behalf of the association, he has spoken before many Congressional meetings and hearings and has written several articles for maritime publications.
Serving with Mr. Massa as vice president of the association will be Michael Gallagher, executive vice president of Rodermond Industries, Inc., and as treasurer, Robert Burke, president of Union Drydock & Repair Company.
Mr. Bruggemann, president of Perth Amboy Dry Dock Co., said he was proud of the association's solidarity the past two years and looks forward to even greater accomplishment during Mr. Massa's term.
New York and New Jersey Dry Dock Association, founded in the early 1900s, represents nine ship repair facilities in the area, including its newest member—Bethlehem Steel Corporation of Hoboken, N.J. It advocates passage of beneficial legislation in Washington, D.C., represents the shipyards through the Shipbuilders Council of America, and discusses common problems of the shipyards.
It has been successful in helping to change the Dry Dock Safety Certification, the sales tax in New Jersey, and in bringing more Navy work into the Port of New York.
