What is a Millwright?
Millwrights are an elite group of construction workers who work primarily in metal and with machinery and equipment requiring precision. Every industry requires millwrights, such as energy, pharmaceutical, refinery, automotive, nuclear, manufacturing, transportation, postal service, and food processing.
They install, maintain, diagnose and repair industrial machines that usually cost millions of dollars. Work is done on compressors, pumps, conveyors, monorails, extruders, turbines and mining equipment using hand and power tools, including welding equipment.
Millwrights may adjust a machine’s calibration just the width of a human hair and increase that machine’s productivity by 20 percent! They know their way around a toolbox, power tools, and machinery. They also know that working safely is the top priority all day, every day.
