Commitment to Our Team Members

We realize success goes beyond just the people and machines. For everyone’s future, we have a commitment to be concerned for the maritime business in our planning. Our employees help us get there. That’s why we’re also committed to our employees’ future by helping to plan for retirement. We’re doing this with an employee-owned approach.

Employee Owners

What is an ESOP?

The technical meaning:  In an ESOP, companies set up a trust fund for employees and either contribute cash to buy company stock, contribute shares directly to the plan, or have the plan borrow money to buy shares.  If the plan borrows money, the company makes contributions to the plan to enable it to repay the loan.  Employee contributions are almost never involved.  After participants leave the company, they either sell the shares in their account on the market or sell them back to the company or the plan.  The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) provides a regulatory framework for plan participants, vesting, benefit distribution, diversification, and more.  The ESOP trust must act for the exclusive of plan participants.

The every day meaning:  This is a long-term retirement plan that costs $0.00 to participate.  Studies have found that participants had almost 3 times the retirement assets as did other comparable workers in non-ESOP companies.  Only about one-third of all employees in the USA believe they will be financially prepared for retirement.  On average, ESOP account balances are 3-5 times higher than 401(k)s at your time of retirement.
