Millwrights Wear Lots
of Hats at PTL


PTL’s team of Millwrights are continually updating their skills, from blueprint reading to diagnosing and solving mechanical problems.


What does a Millwright do?

Millwrights work in factories, power plants and other industrial settings to move, assemble, install or dismantle machinery. They are incredibly skilled at their job, understanding how a number of different machines work after reading complicated technical plans. The machines they construct may take days or weeks, and they may work solo or in a team.

When a factory is updating its equipment, you will see a millwright in all aspects of their job. They will carefully take apart, categorize and store or move old equipment, analyze plans for new equipment, map out space and unpack and assemble new equipment. Millwrights also repair worn or broken parts.

Millwrights need to be good with tools as well as reading plans and be comfortable using large equipment like trucks and cranes.

Our millwrights support a diverse range of operations, including processing plants, manufacturers and other industrial markets, continually consulting with production managers on optimal machine placement and preventive maintenance measures from pre-job planning through closeout.

PTL’s experienced employees can also assemble and install many types of industrial machinery at our customers’ job sites.
