American Bureau Of Shipping

Moves Its Headquarters To 65 Broadway In New York City

The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has announced that its international head- quarters are now located at 65 Broadway,

New York, N.Y. 10006. The telephone of ABS headquarters is (212) 440-0300. "The new headquarters," said Robert T.

Young, chairman of the board, "will enable

ABS to consolidate its operations in one lo- cation, and thus provide even better service to the marine industry." Because of growth in post-World War II years, ABS and its subsidiaries leased space in several lower

Manhattan buildings near its previous head- quarters at 45 Broad Street.

ABS acquired 65 Broadway, which is near

Wall Street in lower Manhattan, in 1977. The 21-story building, formerly the headquarters of the American Express Company, has been completely renovated, and incorporates energy-saving double-pane windows, and air- conditioning and heating systems. "This new facility," Mr. Young stated, "reaffirms the 116-year-old commitment of

ABS to New York."

The American Bureau of Shipping is an international ship classification society that establishes standards, called "Rules," for the design, construction, and periodic survey of merchant vessels and other marine struc- tures. ABS has exclusive offices in 87 coun- tries around the world.
