• Dr. Notes – News from Mike
“Hello everyone, Bart and I are on our way home from the International WorkBoat Show in New Orleans. It is always a good experience coming to New Orleans for this show; along with good business we enjoy the friendly and fun people of New Orleans.
It is hard to believe we just celebrated Thanksgiving and we’re already on to talking about Christmas! Hope everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. As we “wrap up” this year, I reflect back on Dr. Shrink’s 25th year in business and would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our customers, vendors, distributors, and colleagues for helping to make 2017 one of our best years yet. I appreciate each and every one of the people we deal with on a daily basis in many countries around the world. It is my mission to continue innovating new products to enhance the installation of our premium line of shrink wrap materials and provide the best world-class customer service.
I am looking forward to getting in the holiday spirit with our staff at the Dr. Shrink Christmas party next Friday. It is always a nice evening to relax and enjoy the end of another great year, and busy season. I’ve also asked Santa Claus to come later this month to visit all the kids, grand-kids, nieces and nephews of our team here at Dr. Shrink. It is always a special time of year. Still no snow in Manistee, but that will come soon. How many of you celebrate the holidays with a white Christmas?
We will also be extending holiday specials and promotions throughout this month so please make sure you are on our e-lists or Facebook page for notifications. Wishing you all the best this holiday season.

• Construction Industry
This month the Dr. is highlighting products and services as it relates to the Construction Industry. When Dr. Shrink started, we were so focused on the short marine and recreation season, we didn’t realize the full potential of a 12 month shrink wrap industry. That is, until we started to identify the major needs in all 6 industries of shrink wrap across the globe. Shrink wrap is becoming the new face of protection in many different industries – from construction and scaffolding to industrial and agricultural. It can be used in so many ways, don’t hold yourself to just one industry.
The scaffolding and containment industry has been on the rise in the list of industries that are reaping the benefits of shrink wrap protection. Dr. Shrink offers 5 different sizes of Flame Retardant shrink wrap in 7, 9, or 12 mil thicknesses. All of our Flame Retardant film meets or exceeds all NFPA 701 specifications. Today, we are proudly supplying products, educational materials, marketing support and much more to businesses who have made their marine and recreational hobby into a thriving 12 month career.
