The best asset a material handling crew can bring to a project is productivity. When Eastern Millwrights are on site, that productivity is guaranteed through the skills, training, and experience of our technicians, and the smart business sense and competitive pricing of our contractors.

We understand that no two projects are alike, and we approach every project as an individual challenge. Our millwright contractors know they are successful when the customer is as productive as possible.

We establish a communication system immediately with a pre-project conference to outline the scope of work, manpower needs and scheduling issues. That interaction remains throughout the life of the project.

And, when installations are done within active facilities, we work with you to complete projects without interrupting or delaying operations by adjusting work schedules around peak production hours and scheduling shifts during non-typical work hours.

Partnering with the EMRC 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.
