Robert Strasser Joins MacGregor, U.S.A. As Technical Director

MacGregor Comarain, Inc. of Cranford, N.J., has a p p o i n t ed Robert C. Strasser as technical director. The post is considered a key one considering the currently improved p r o s p e c t s f or merchant and naval shipbuilding in the U.S., with the consequent increase in opportunity for cargo access equipment suppliers.

Mr. Strasser's appointment reflects M a c G r e g o r C r a n f o r d 's growing share of the market, which over the past few years has increased in respect of designs for both conventional and r o / r o vessels.

A graduate of New York State Maritime College, Mr. Strasser has accumulated many years' experience in engineering design, applied research, and technical project management. In 16 years with Newport News Shipbuilding, he held senior management positions as head of the Engineering Laboratory, assistant director and later director of research, and finally as engineering projects manager on a special project for the U.S. Maritime Administration.

Earlier in his career Mr. Strasser, who started as naval architect at Taylor Model Basin, served two years as an officer in the United States Navy as hull design officer, Supervisor of Shipbuilding, New York. He then joined the Marine Division of Sperry Gyroscope Company, involved in the design and assessment of ships' anti-roll stabilizers.
