China Licensed To Build And Install MacGregor Cargo Access Equipment

The burgeoning Chinese shipbuilding industry has become the newest member of the worldwide MacGregor organization. It was welcomed into the ranks of those countries already benefitting from the world's leading cargo-handling equipment designs, at a recent signing ceremony in Paris.

Under the terms of a technical cooperation agreement made between the Peking-based China Corporation of Shipbuilding Industry (CCSI) and MacGregor Cargo Handling (Pacific) Ltd., Hong Kong, the Chinese industry, through CCSI, becomes a full participant in the organization, thus gaining access to the know-how that will enable it to design, manufacture, and install the full ex- tensive range of MacGregor cargo access and transfer equipment.

Ships built in Chinese yards, whether for Chinese or foreign ownership, will benefit from the agreement.

The transfer of technology involved will be imparted through MacGregor Cargo Handling (Pacific) Ltd. and a number of other MacGregor companies, in a variety of ways. As a prerequisite for speedy implementation of the agreement, a program of training for a number of qualified Chinese designer/draftsmen, and for engineers specializing in fabrication and quality control, commenced almost immediately.

In addition to these more direct methods of technology transfer Chinese delegates will, in the future, be attending all the regular international technical meetings and conventions periodically arranged for the internal monitoring of MacGregor progress and interchange of knowledge between members of the international organization.

Products conforming to Mac- Gregor designs and standards made in Chinese yards or factories will be readily identifiable, as they will bear a plate reading "Shanghai-MacGregor."
