About Us

The Millwright Employers Association (MEA) is a management organization of licensed, highly skilled Union millwright contractors in all areas of industrial construction, repair and maintenance. No matter what your needs, we can handle them efficiently and effectively.

What Is A Millwright?

A millwright originally was a specialized carpenter who was trained as a carpenter and as well had working knowledge of gear ratios, driveshaft speeds, and other equations. The “mill” in millwright refers to the genesis of the trade in building flour mills and other watermills and windmills.

A millwright today maintains or constructs industrial machinery such as that which would be related to assembly lines, pumps, valves, printing presses, and other types of assembly technology. Millwrights are usually responsible for the unassembled equipment when it arrives at the job site. Using hoisting and moving equipment they position the pieces that need to be assembled. Their job requires a thorough knowledge of the load-bearing capabilities of the equipment they use as well as an understanding of blueprints and technical instructions.
