A Blueprint for Success
A millwright is a skilled worker who manipulates industrial machinery found in factories, construction sites, and other industries. Millwrights are also known as Mechanical Maintenance Technicians.
Millwrights are often involved in comprehensive industrial and mechanical projects due to ever-increasing technology. Basic millwright skills include blueprint reading, installation, maintenance, and repair of industrial machinery and equipment. Using specialized tools, such as welders or hydraulic bolters, they align and replace a machine’s individual parts. They also move and relocate machinery on- and off-site.
