Plant, Munroe Establish Naval Architectural And Marine Consulting Firm
Thomas G. Plant Jr. and Hugh F. Munroe announced the establishment of Plant and Munroe, a division of Plant Contractors, Inc. The firm, headquartered in San Francisco, Calif., provides naval architectural and marine consulting services throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and the Pacific Basin. The formation of Plant and Munroe extends an association of two well-known members of the maritime community that began in 1953 when Mr. Plant, then president of Plant Shipyard Corporation, Alameda, Calif., engaged Mr. Munroe as chief naval architect and manager of new construction. Mr. Munroe, who will serve as division manager, has spent more than 30 years in marine engineering, design, and construction. Following his shipyard experience, Mr.
Munroe served 19 years with American President Lines. Following that, he served three years as project engineer with the marine projects group of Bechtel Corporation. In 1978, Mr. Munroe was elected president of Morris Guralnick Associates, Inc., naval architects and marine engineering firm, the position he left recently to concentrate on the establishment of the new firm.
