Precision and productivity are the standard work products delivered by Southern States Millwrights every day. 

Our Excellence Is Grounded in Training and Partnerships

The SSMRC seeks out industry partnerships with the goal of delivering exactly what is needed on every job.

Our partners include Siemens Generation Service, General Electric (APM), First Energy, Exelon and others, all of which assist in our training by providing equipment, expert consultation, guest instructors, and more.

For example, when a demand for turbine experts surfaced, we worked with industry leaders Atlantic Plant Maintenance and Siemens to develop gas and steam turbine qualification programs to train our millwrights in the newest power plant technology.

The UBC’s International Training Center in Las Vegas now hosts a turbine training facility with equipment from these partners for hands-on instruction. SSMRC millwright training also includes technical categories such as rigging and signaling, aerial-lift operation, machinery alignment, optical alignment, forklift operation, scaffolding, welding, and bolt tensioning.


Starting with pre-project conferences to outline the scope of work, manpower needs, and scheduling issues, our contractors keep lines of communication open throughout the life of the project. We also work to complete projects without production missing a beat by adjusting work schedules around peak production hours and scheduling shifts during non-typical work hours.

Special Attention to Safety

There is no substitute for solid attention to safety, and the SSMRC believes a safe work site is achieved only by comprehensive training for every millwright on every project. Our members must complete and achieve mastery of the following health and safety training programs:

  • Blood-Borne Pathogens
