• Shrink Wrap for Industrial Applications

This month the Dr. is highlighting products and services as it relates to the Industrial industry. This industry is the fastest growing year-round shrink wrap market and can yield great business as customers demand packaging solutions along with corrosion inhibiting protection.

With Dr. Shrink’s complete line of products that are capable of wrapping almost all objects, there’s nothing you can’t protect.
