About | Millwrights

Industrial Millwrights ensure the automation, robots and production equipment in manufacturing facilities are running at maximum efficiency by adjusting, dismantling, welding, repairing and/or replacing equipment. Making replacement parts using hands-on machine tools is also one of their many responsibilities. Ample opportunities in Halton Region are predicted given that sixty percent of millwrights are approaching retirement within the next few years.

About | Machinists


Machinists determine the best way to produce a part by interpreting drawings, selecting the most appropriate raw materials and performing calculations. They also make parts using measuring equipment and machine tools. Machinists work on the same types of machines as Tool & Die Makers to make parts that are then assembled into tools, dies or fixtures.
