Holding Cargo & Load Handling Companies Responsible
The MacGregor Group, a subsidiary of Cargotec Corporation, provides marine cargo and offshore load-handling solutions for container ships, bulk carriers, general cargo ships, reefer ships, and others. MacGregor Group products include cranes, winches, deck-skid systems, port access systems, and more. The company's main customers are shipowners, ship and port operators, and shipyards in the commercial marine and offshore industries.
The MacGregor brothers started the company in 1929, after having built some of the first steel hatch covers. Now, MacGregor is a leading name in cargo and load handling for offshore and marine companies. With nearly 2,000 employees as of 2022, the company operates across 31 countries, providing a 24/7 service network, upgrades, repairs, and spare parts for many cargo-carrying vessels.
In a Hazardous Industry, Accidents Are Still Preventable
The offshore industry is full of dangers for the people who work in it. However, this does not release companies from their responsibility to protect workers from harm. Most accidents, injuries, or fatalities at sea are a result of negligence; they are fundamentally preventable with proper care. The Jones Act lawyers at Arnold & Itkin have seen a repeating pattern: companies boast about safety but fail to keep workers safe. Too often, it’s to the extent where simple repairs or replacement parts would have addressed the hazard and prevented an accident, but in order to save pennies, the company decided to put their workers at risk instead. If you or a loved one has been hurt working for the MacGregor Group, we can help you hold this company accountable, both for your sake and the sake of future employees.
