Millwrights install and maintain industrial equipment, machinery, and instrumentation.  They assemble and install such equipment as conveyors, pumps, compressors, generators, loading dock levelers, overhead cranes, and robotic assembly devices.  They work in refineries, manufacturing plants of all types, warehouses, food processing facilities, power plants, and other industrial settings.  Although their work can be heavy, it is often technical, requiring a high degree of precision.
