PVC PRICES MOVING UP
PVC prices stayed put for the second consecutive month after moving up a total of 6¢/lb. However, suppliers were pushing to get their June 3¢/lb increase last month, and analyst see the possibility of 1-2¢ of that hike going through by month's end (August). Upward drivers included increases in base feedstocks chlorine and ethane, an expected uptick in overseas demand, and force majeure declared by Westlake Chemical at its Kentucky plant.

Evolution Wrapper
Success Story
EvolutionJust wanted to reach out to you and let you know that after having your Evolution wrap machine using XP Pre-Stretched film for close to 2 years, we are very satisfied with its performance. One of my biggest concerns overseeing our night crew is giving them reliable and consistent tools to make their job as efficient as possible. Quite honestly, I don’t want them coming to me complaining about a machine that doesn’t work. Mission Accomplished!

This current configuration is fast, uses much less stretch film due to its strength and the machine is dependable. We also love the technical support we get when, at a minimum, is needed.

Continue to use us as a reference for future business. We are very satisfied and would like to help out fellow wholesalers as you see fit. (Read - Free Evolution wrapper)

LITEWRAPPER FEEDBACK
Litewrapper and logoBelow is the feedback I received from the inbound team.

1. The tool was really easy to use.
2. The stretch wrap held better than the current shrink wrap we are using
3. The associates like the fact that they could walk forward instead of walking backwards which is a great safety feature.
4. The pallets were wrapped quicker due to the shrink wrap being pre-stretched so they don't lose the width of wrap
5. The associates were able to wrap taller pallets because of the tool
6. Associates did not have to bend over as much
7. Some associates were using too much wrap because they were used to using the current wrap.

Overall they like the new wrap as long as the tools are available. We had some associates that ended up using the wrap without the tool because we ran low on wrap for awhile. They said they did not like it because it would rip easier and couldn't wrap as tight. I then explained why those issues were happening and let them test it with the tool. After they tested it with the tool I got the same feedback as above.
