The Automotive Industry Is Not for the Faint of Heart

When vehicles convey down automotive assembly lines, welds and rigging had better withstand the pressure and stress of the vibration and movement of that massive weight.

From stamping and body assembly to the engine line, painting and interiors — even the slightest discourse in precision sets and level alignments can mean millions in lost productivity. And outages? Time is money, but so is safety. Accurate, efficient outages are the key to getting an automotive plant up and running — but if done improperly, the impact can be catastrophic.

Now Is Not the Time to Gamble on Your Plant’s Millwright Workforce

UBC millwrights are the automotive industry’s go-to professionals for machinery setting, rigging, welding, alignments, outages, and more. Our advantage is simple: We embrace new ways to keep pace with the evolving automotive industry. We do that by training specifically in automotive plant proficiency, making us expertly qualified in everything from outages and maintenance to mechatronics.

When quality, timeliness, and safety are the deliverables, we are called upon to leverage our experience and success with sophisticated precision levels and layout tools to set this equipment — sometimes adjusting to the width of a human hair — so that one station works in harmony with the next.
