About Us

Man Welding

UBC millwrights are elite construction professionals who have exceptional skills to work primarily with machinery and equipment requiring precision. UBC 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.

We build partnerships based on respect and trust. We provide skilled, responsible millwrights to meet the challenges of any project. Because we are committed to getting each job done right, we include a clause in your contract that eliminates work slowdowns and jurisdictional disputes, because we believe that, as professionals, we can discuss and solve any problems while keeping your project on target.

As partners, we develop contracts and agreements to fit any project. We provide:

  • Whole-project manpower or specialty staffing
  • Flexible assignments — five eight-hour days, four 10-hour days, etc.
  • Recall rights, so you may request a certain professional or ask to have someone removed

No slow-downs. No disputes. No interference with project management. Just skill and productivity.
