Millwrights install large and oversized machinery and equipment for industrial and production facilities. With the increasing demand for technology across all industries, millwrights have continually more sophisticated machines to install and maintain. Many workers specialize in the installation and maintenance of specific machines or machine brands.

After gaining industry experience, millwrights have the opportunity to earn higher wages and become supervisors or independent contractors. As technology continues to improve, many companies will need millwrights to disassemble old machines and replace them with new ones, leading to high job prospects.
