Led by an international Labor-Management Committee, the UBC 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, General Electric (APM), Exelon and others, all of which assist in our training efforts by providing equipment, expert consultation, guest instructors, and more.

Partnering with the UBC nets the following assets from our millwrights and contractors:

Dedication: We come to work every day with a positive attitude, a professional appearance, and a determination to finish the job correctly the first time.

Availability: Our thousands of millwrights enable our contractors to be fully staffed at all times, which allows for quick response to emergencies and other installation challenges.

Timeliness: Meeting schedules is key, and our crews know that fast, accurate installations are priority one.

Flexibility: Compressed schedules, adjustments in daily work hours, work days and work weeks, and adjusting staffing numbers are just some of the strategies we will employ to keep your project on time and on budget.

Customer Service: We are trained to not only finish work according to the customer’s satisfaction, but to follow through with training, maintenance and customer service. One call puts the best-trained maintenance crews at the work site to get the system up and running as fast as possible.

Our Excellence is Grounded in Training

As trends emerge and standards evolve in the North American construction industry, training programs are developed and presented, so that our millwrights meet the challenges encountered on the job site. For instance, when a demand for turbine experts surfaces, we worked with industry leaders Atlantic Plant Maintenance and Siemens to develop gas and steam turbine qualification programs to train our millwrights in the newest power plant technology.

The UBC’s International Training Center in Las Vegas now hosts a turbine training facility with equipment from these partners for hands-on instruction.

Millwrights at Work

Our millwrights and instructors learn from hands-on training with the most advanced equipment and tools available in this industry. As a result, our unmatched training creates professionals who are not only proficient in all material handling skills, but also who understand the importance of health and safety practices.
