• Dr. Notes – News from Mike
“Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween! We had fun this past weekend hosting a pumpkin carving & costume party as well as a BBQ for the staff and their families. Take a look at the photos below– there were some excellent and creative costumes!
As the snow begins to fall here in Manistee, MI– our sales team has a busy month of international travel. I will be spending some time in Abu Dhabi for ADIPEC (Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference) which is the largest gathering of the global oil and gas professionals. I’m also heading to Amsterdam for METS (Marine Equipment Trade Show)– this is a fantastic show that showcases products from the Shipping, Marine & Ports Industry. Dr. Shrink, Inc. fits right in.
A heartfelt thank you to all who purchased pink shrink wrap from us this past month. Dr. Shrink donated a portion of each purchase price towards breast cancer research. Several customers have also sent photos of their items wrapped in pink and it’s been fun browsing through everyone’s pink application photos. The pink shrink wrap really does make a statement.
Here’s to a great November! As always, contact me any time and let me know what we can do for you. I’m always available.”

• Industrial Industry
This month the Dr. is highlighting products and services as it relates to the Industrial Industry. Manufacturers generate a slew of diverse products that come in all types of different shapes and sizes. For those producing large machinery, they face the challenge of properly storing and transporting the product without inflicting damage.
How it works: Shrink wrap is applied and shrunk using a propane fired heat tool; shrinking it tightly and fully encasing the piece of machinery. Before you start applying the shrink wrap, examine the object and look for areas that may need padding, protection from chafing, or need insulation against extreme heat. Then, determine how far down the cover will go and the method for securing the shrink wrap at the object’s base. Dr. Shrink’s innovative strapping system allows for easy attachment. When laying the wrap over the object, form pleats at the corners and where there is excess wrap. When shrinking, you start from the base since the rising heat warms the wrap as you work upward. Shrink section by section; and it’s recommended to heat the entire object at one time for a tighter, more durable cover. When finished, inspect and tape any holes and all pleats.
