Welcome to the Eastern Millwright Regional Council, your resource for more than 4,000 highly skilled and productive millwrights from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America.

Eastern Millwright Regional Council professionals are expertly trained and engaged with the construction, installation and maintenance of complex machinery, containing moving, interconnected parts. The millwrights are precision craftsmen who install, upgrade, maintain, diagnose, and repair industries’ most complex and intricate machinery to ensure they operate in perfect working order.

Qualified Millwrights have a working knowledge of moving interconnected parts, including drive shafts, bearing, gearing, conveyors, gas, nuclear and steam turbines. They must often combine the skills of many trades in order to fabricate or assemble industrial machinery, install equipment within thousandths of an inch, and later diagnose and maintain the machinery.
