Comprehensive Solutions in Material Handling

Productivity is every material handling crew’s most valuable asset. With millwrights from the Southeastern Carpenters Regional Council on the job, safety and productivity are guaranteed through our skills, training, and experience, and the smart business sense and competitive pricing of our contractors.

Every installation project is a unique, individual challenge. SECRC millwrights and contractors work together to finish the job and get the customer up and running quickly. We establish a communications system with a pre-project conference to outline the scope of work, manpower needs, and scheduling issues—and we maintain that interaction throughout the project.

And, when SECRC millwrights perform installations within active facilities, we adjust schedules around peak production times and schedule shifts during non-typical work hours to avoid interrupting and delaying operations.
