International shrink-wrap supplier Dr. Shrink said it is celebrating 25 years in business in 2017.

“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 square feet of work space,” company founder Mike Stenberg said in a statement.

“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.”

Starting in 1985, Stenberg worked as a shrink-wrap installer, wrapping boats, machinery, airplanes and buildings for about seven years, where he said he perfected the trade and acquired skills that made shrink wrapping easier and more efficient.

As shrink wrapping became more prevalent and widespread, Stenberg said he saw a more pressing need for distribution of premium shrink wrap and installation supplies and his focus shifted from being a shrink-wrap installer to a distributor.

In 1992, he retreated from shrink-wrap installation work to focus more on selling and distributing shrink-wrap materials. Stenberg started Dr. Shrink as a distribution company in his home garage in Manistee, Mich., in 1992.

His initial vision for the company was to offer expert shrink-wrapping advice, innovative products, premium high-quality products and excellent service.

Based in Manistee, Dr. Shrink supplies shrink wrap, supplies and accessories. The company said it works with customers in all markets, from marine to industrial to wind power. It's this diversity that Dr. Shrink said has enabled it to remain a strong business.
