Trade Information – Millwrights

Millwrights are construction professionals who work primarily with machinery and equipment requiring precision. Millwrights install, maintain, diagnose, and repair equipment such as compressors, pumps, conveyors, gas and steam turbines, monorails, and extruders.

“Precision” is the standard work product of UBC millwrights. These members consistently participate in training and skill-enhancement classes to become experts in the use of tools and instruments that they must master. A keen eye for the perfect fit is a primary asset for millwrights, having to sometimes work with specifications requiring tolerances to a thousandth of an inch.

UBC millwrights can be found performing mission-critical work at coal, gas, nuclear, and alternative-energy power plants. Their skills are also vital in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, food processing, lumber, pulp and paper, material handling, mining, petrochemical, steel and alloys, pharmaceuticals, and mechanical construction.

Led by a national Labor-Management Committee, the UBC’s millwright program actively seeks out industry partnerships, with the goal of providing to customers exactly what is needed on the job site. These partnerships include Siemens Generation Service (SGS), General Electric (APM), Excelon, FlowServe, and others, all of which assist in our training efforts by providing equipment, expert consultation, guest instructors, and more.
