In response to this April 1st resin increase, all new orders received on or after May 2nd will be priced at a 5% increase. This increase is in addition to our previously announced increase implemented April 4th. Improving global and domestic demand, along with rising feedstock costs are currently supporting this increase.

PVC resin producers have announced a $.03/lb increase for April 1, 2016 which is in addition to their previous $.05/lb announcement in March. These actions will make it necessary to increase the price of all PVC products listed below entered on or after Monday, May 23, 2016 - Cutter Box Films, Laundry Film, Meat Film.
As a result of recent resin increases and the
announcement of further increases by resin
suppliers, we find it necessary to increase the
prices on all PVC packaging films by 8%. This
increase includes all meat/produce/cheese/deli
laundry and specialty films. Orders placed on May
16, 2016 or later, will be billed at the new

The metals market has finally stopped melting down -- at least for the moment. After crashing to crisis levels late last year, raw materials that serve as key barometers of global growth are suddenly showing signs of life. Iron ore has skyrocketed 31% since mid-January, while copper and aluminum -- key construction components -- are up 7% since then

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)
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.
