Millwrights install, maintain, diagnose, and repair equipment such as compressors, pumps, conveyors, gas and steam turbines, monorails, and extruders. 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, and pharmaceuticals.
Precision is a critical skill for millwrights, who sometimes work with specifications requiring tolerances to a thousandth of an inch. Ongoing UBC training and skill-enhancement classes ensure members are expert in the use of tools and instruments. Led by a national labor-management committee, the UBC’s millwright program actively seeks additional industry partners to ensure UBC millwrights continue to meet and exceed customer expectations.
