Employment Prospects


There are approximately 44,300 millwrights employed in the United States. Millwrights work in every state but are concentrated in highly industrial areas. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that the states with the highest level of employment in this occupation are Texas, California, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. Most millwrights are employed in industries that manufacture durable goods, such as automobiles, steel, and metal products, or in construction. Others work in plants that manufacture paper, chemicals, knit goods, and other items, or with utility companies. Manufacturers and retailers of industrial machinery often employ millwrights, usually under contract, to install machines for their customers.
