• Dr. Notes – News from Mike

“I hope you all had a great Memorial Day.  I am currently in Oslo, Norway working the Nor-Shipping tradeshow with our distributors. Norway builds and supplies some of the most advanced vessels in the world. The shipping and ocean-freight industry is booming and we are staying on top of the latest trends. Shrink wrap is becoming the widespread answer to protecting many large, on-deck ocean freight products during transportation. In addition to our Volatile Corrosion Inhibiting (VCI) shrink wrap, we are continuously adding new Moisture Inhibiting products and Anti-Corrosion supplies to our product line to make sure shrink wrapped products are completely protected from corrosion/rust.
Our featured shrink wrap industry for June, Shipping/Transportation, is one that all installers should consider getting into– there is an abundance of business there. We understand some enormous items can seem intimidating to shrink wrap and that is why we are here for you 24/7– call us and we’ll help you through the entire process. Our experienced technical staff will recommend what size shrink wrap to use, which additional installation accessories you’ll need, and finally, will guide you through the process of shrink wrapping the object. Being a customer of Dr. Shrink is also being a business partner– we want to watch you succeed in your shrink wrapping endeavors.
We’re staying busy at Dr. Shrink and are currently working on the new 2017/2018 Product Catalog for the fall season; we will notify you when the catalogs have been printed and mailed to make sure you receive one.
From everyone here at Dr. Shrink, we would like to wish all the Dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day on June 18th! Call us for a shrink wrap start-up kit; the perfect gift for the Do-it-Yourself Dad in your life who wants to wrap his outdoor patio furniture, boat, BBQ grill, yard equipment, and more!
Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions. I enjoy hearing from our customers- email me at

• Transportation & the Benefits of Shrink Wrap

This month the Dr. is highlighting products and services as it relates to the Material Handling/Transportation industry. The use of shrink wrap in the shipping, transportation, and logistics industry is becoming more widespread as it is more durable than stretch wrap and full encapsulation can make products completely weatherproof as well as tamper-resistant. It is becoming quite common to see shrink wrapped products/equipment traveling down the road and being protected from road grime, dirt, and other weather-related elements.
Offering shrink wrap solutions from 6-12 mil thickness, we can provide some of the most durable transportation protection in the market. This is an ideal business to add to your Marine & Recreation market when looking to expand immediately.
