How did you first get involved with shrink-wrapping?
I started my first industrial shrinkwrapping company called ‘PlasWrap’ in 2009. We were just a small team with everybody ‘on the tools’; even my Dad helped out on occasion! At that time we bought our shrink wrap from a distributor in the South of England and after a couple of years we were using many tonnes of shrink wrap every month so they asked me if I was interested in setting up a ‘joint venture’ and creating a specialised scaffold shrink wrap installation division for them.
I set up the new scaffold wrap installation division for the distributor and quickly grew the team to 10 installers working for scaffolders and contractors all over the UK.
However, I became frustrated with the quality of the shrink wrap that I was using; welds or joints between sheets came apart easily and it was difficult to heat shrink the scaffold wrap ‘drum tight’, especially in wet and breezy conditions. It was frustrating to see scaffolders who had been trained on the scaffold wrap installation process struggling with the product and in many cases just giving up with it. It was hard to make those responsible for product quality see what problems this caused for our installers and customers at the ‘sharp end’ and they had never experienced the horrible feeling of not being able to sleep at night when it was windy.
So, in 2014 I established Rhino Shrink Wrap. Finding a shrink wrap film tough enough for the job proved to be a challenge as all the scaffold shrink wrap suppliers I found via the web, even those who claimed to be the ‘manufacturers’, in reality were just distributors for ‘mass market’ plastics manufacturers. This meant the distributors had minimal control over the quality of the film that they received from the manufacturers which meant the quality could vary from roll to roll, there was no consistency.
