4 Questions to Ask Your Shrink Wrap Supplier

By October 2, 2015No Comments

If you’re looking for a new supplier of shrink wrap film, then there are a few questions you should have ready to ask to ensure that they are able to meet your needs. Whether it’s your first time looking for someone who offers shrink wrap, or you’re looking to change your current supplier, keep these things in mind to make sure that you’re getting the most for your money.

Do You Manufacture?

In order to cut the supply chain, it’s important to make sure that your supplier is the same as your manufacturer. This will not only cut down on cost, but cut down on time and the possibility of things going wrong.

If they do manufacture shrink wrap, then you’re off to a good start. You then want to find out if they’re appropriately located to ensure the fastest possible delivery, whether they have a range of shrink wrap packaging to meet all of your production requirements, and how long they have been manufacturing for. If they’ve been going for decades then you know that they’re a trusted supplier.

Who Have You Supplied to in the Past?

This is a great question to ask to see whether they can meet your requirements. Whether they’ve had experience with your specific industry before or not, you want to ensure they have a range of clients on their books so that they can cater to your needs.

For instance, if you’re a timber manufacturer and a company has supplied shrink wrap to your industry as well as a chocolate company, then you know that they have a wide range of material to use to give you precisely what you want and need.

Can You Meet My Specific Requirements?

Whether you need a generic shrink wrap, or something that’s a bit more uncommon, it’s best to check whether they offer a range of wrap before you use them for the first time. This is because by having different types of plastic, you know that you have a reliable company who can help you as your company expands and you need something a bit different from your shrink wrap.

Do You Sell Shrink Wrap Machines?

If you want to avoid the middle man altogether then you want someone who has extensive experience using and selling shrink wrap machines. This means working with somebody who is able to offer a demonstration of their shrink wrap machinery and materials, as well as experts who know what the right material is for your needs.
