    Well since the last one of these was posted I've changed job titles.
    I work for the oldest international Medical Equipment manufacturer in the U.S. and I wear multiple hats for the company.
    I'm the engineer, designer, and site scheduler for Hospital installed surgery theater, and communications systems for the Southwest area.
    Area supervisor for on-site equipment repair teams working in the Southwest and Caribbean areas.
    And Austin, TX territory manager (hopefully to be transfered back to DFW soon as the Fort Worth area site Manager)
    We manufacture, rent, repair, and install any hospital equipment you can think of.

    Its a whole lot better than the army was. Being a tank mechanic was a really good time. But here i work for 8 hours or 10hours at another facility, and im done. That is one of my favorite parts.
    The only real complaint is the swing shift, and the fact that i still get a power bill everymonth even though i work for the company

    Millwrights #2736 British Columbia.
    We would like to welcome you to the Millwrights, Machine Erectors and Maintenance Local Union 2736 Web Site. We are a Provincial Local Union that services all of British Columbia and Vancouver Island. Our office is located in Surrey, B.C.
    We are signatory to approximately 100 contractors that work in industries such as:

    • Pulp and Paper
    • Hydro Electric
    • Power Generation
    • The Mining Industries

    We have close to 500 members including 40 apprentices, consisting of:

    • Certified Millwrights
    • Machinists
    • Welders
    • Apprentices

    Millwrights Local Union 2736 was chartered in 1956 and is affiliated to the B.C. Provincial Council of Carpenters. For negotiating purposes we are included in the British Columbia Bargaining Council of Building Trade Unions (B.C.B.C.B.T.U.) and negotiate a standard agreement with Construction Labour Relations Association of British Columbia (C.L.R.A.).

    About Us

    Historically, the name Millwright meant a person who kept a mill in good working order. In those days the Millwright both designed and supervised the construction of all parts of the mill. In addition, it was usually the Millwright who installed and undertook major repairs to the mills' equipment and machinery.
    Today, work performed by Millwrights is far-reaching and generally associated with all major industries including:

    • nuclear
    • solar power
    • space exploration

    Today's Millwright is a generalist, someone with a solid general understanding of the construction and manufacturing processes, who can:

    • communicate effectively with other tradespeople
    • work well in a team environment
    • has the ability to read and interpret engineering drawings and specifications, technical literature
    • adhere to work environment safety regulations

    Today's Millwright also tests and/or troubleshoots completed work to ensure that it meets very exacting standards. The highly skilled Millwright is proficient in a wide range of duties involving the installation, repair and maintenance of machinery and related devices and systems.
    The Millwright Trade, through apprenticeship training and upgrading is positioning itself for the work of the future that will be significantly impacted by the introduction of new technologies. This will place an increasing emphasis on continuous skill development in more "high tech" skill areas including:

    • pneumatic and hydraulic systems
    • robotics
    • electrical and electronic controls
    • optical alignment
    • preventive and predictive maintenance
    • vibration analysis
    • laser coupling alignment
    • quality control
    • and many, many more...
