Dr. Shrink joins shrink-wrap trade association

International shrink-wrap supplier Dr. Shrink is one of the charter members of a newly founded non-profit organization designed to focus the shrink-wrapping industry and help guide it into the future.

The National Association of Shrink Wrapping Professionals will work to formulate industry standards for shrink wrappers around the world; provide educational programs; promote safety in all aspects of shrink wrapping, from heat tool usage to proper ladders for installation projects; and find solutions to any environmental issues with shrink wrap.

“Commercial shrink wrapping has been around for 30 years without a guiding organization,” Dr. Shrink president Mike Stenberg said in a statement. “We're proud to help all shrink wrappers by offering them the opportunity to join and work together toward common goals.”

The association is based in Maryland, and its president is Chris Grimm of Atlantic Shrink Wrap. The organization plans to debut in October at this year's International BoatBuilders' Exhibition and Conference.
