We’re investing in Gulf Coast training centers

The Southern States Millwright Regional Council is making significant investments in Gulf Coast training centers, ensuring the area’s power-generation and petrochemical industries have continued access to elite craftspeople with the complex skills these industries demand.

The council has invested $2.1 million in the Houston and Arlington, Texas, centers, with funding going toward new training equipment, renovations and more. For the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, training center, the council recently purchased a $30,000 compressor, which millwrights are using to train for work in the petrochemical and related energy fields. Compressor upgrades are coming soon to the Moss Point, Mississippi, training center as well.
