Shrink-wrap provider Dr. Shrink is celebrates its 30th anniversary this month.

The company was founded in 1992 by Mike and Jill Stenberg in Manistee, Mich., as a two-person operation. Before that, Mike Steinberg worked as a shrink-wrap installer, including the wrapping of boats. The growth in demand inspired him to become a distributor.

Dr. Shrink has grown into an international corporation with more than 20 employees. The company supplies premium virgin resin shrink-wrap and is a leader in innovation, responsible for many of the accessories and practices implemented around the world.

“Jill and I started Dr. Shrink in our home and distributed products out of our garage,” Mike Steinberg, company president, said in a statement. “Our initial vision for the company was to offer expert shrink-wrap installation advice, technical support, and provide excellent customer service. … Today we couldn’t be more proud of this company, and the people we have on our team. There is no way Dr. Shrink Inc. could have reached this milestone without the loyalty of our amazing customers, distributors, and our team of fantastic employees.”
