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. 

Manufacturers generate a slew of diverse products that come in all types of different shapes and sizes. For those who produce large machinery, they face the challenge of properly storing and transporting the product without inflicting damage. With Dr. Shrink's complete line of products that are capable of wrapping almost all objects, there's nothing you can't protect. Top industrial wrapping specialists can also compete with other protection methods to show a greater return on investment for their clients.

It makes for a fun environment to work in. Plus the coffee is good."

4) What is your proudest moment at Dr. Shrink?   " We were meeting up after work, at a local restaurant, to take our Christmas photo. At the time I was working here through a temp agency, but I had been told that day there were going to hire me on. At the party Mike shook my hand and welcomed me aboard. That moment comes to mind."

Dog of the Month: Sadie Stenberg

Here at D r. Shrink, Inc. we are an animal friendly office (to say the least!) and our pets are part of our family. There are 6 dogs and an office cat that roam around on a daily basis, so we decided we should introduce them to you. You may have heard a few of the more vocal dogs through the phone when you call. We are featuring each of our dogs so you can put a face with the voice!

Meet Sadie - Sadie is the beloved dog of Bart Stenberg (Dr. Shrink's general manager). Sadie has a great story-- she was a Humane Society rescue dog, and was within a couple of days of being euthanized when she was adopted. 

Sadie turned 13 years old on April 1st and is the most kind, sweet, and loyal dog. Sadie follows Bart all throughout Dr. Shrink-- wherever Bart is in the office, Sadie is right by his side. When he leaves the office, Sadie will lay patiently at the door until he comes back. She brings a smile to all of our faces and brightens our day. Sadie goes by the nicknames of Sadie April, Red Dog, and Shade. We love you, Sadie!
