Dr. Notes - News from Mike
" Dr. Shrink is celebrating our 25th year in business on the 21st of April.  We've had a great and adventurous ride building Dr. Shrink, Inc.  over the last 25 years- from starting our business in a one car garage to now having over 112,000 sq. ft. of work space. There is no way we could have done this without the help and loyalty of our customers. I appreciate each and every one of the people we deal with on a daily basis in many countries around the world. The excellent service and products that Dr. Shrink, Inc. offers wouldn't happen without our tremendous team of vendors, customer service representatives, warehouse employees, and salespeople who work very hard to make us a world class business. In the future we at Dr. Shrink, Inc. will continue to innovate new products to enhance the installation of our premium line of shrink wrap materials. We will also continue to improve upon our ordering, training, and processing systems to make it even easier for our customers to get the products and training they need, when they need it.  Thank you to our customers, vendors, and our team members for making Dr. Shrink, Inc. the successful company it is today.

Material Handling Industry materialhandling
This month the Dr. is highlighting products and services as it relates to the Material Handling 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.

Dr. Shrink, Inc. cares about preserving the environment and has two recycling programs in place that are easy, effective, and trouble-free.
