About Southern States Millwright Regional Council

The Southern States Millwright Regional Council (SSMRC) unites more than 5000 millwright journeymen and apprentices, all of whom are members the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America.

SSMRC members work throughout the 11 southern states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. UBC General President Doug McCarron formed the SSMRC to even more effectively serve the expanding needs of southern-based companies, such as refineries, paper mills, nuclear plants and other manufacturers in need of experienced, quality millwrights.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for our customers to access the best-trained, most highly qualified millwright professionals in a more seamless, efficient manner,” said Wayne Jennings, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the SSMRC.

SSMRC millwrights are regarded as the best in the industry, skills learned through the UBC’s legendary training program. To keep SSMRC millwrights at the top of their trade, mobilized training is a key strategy, where instructors travel across the 11-state footprint to deliver specialized training quickly to prepare for jobsite needs.
