Atlantic Shrink Wrap was awarded the privilege of helping the U.S. government preserve part of its military history for future use: shrink wrapping the F-15 Eagle. Originally designed by McDonnell-Douglas in the mid 1970’s, this aircraft continues to be a vital part of the Air Force arsenal today, having been flown in hundreds of successful missions.
After an arduous bidding process, the dedicated and highly experienced staff of Atlantic Shrink Wrap took on the task of preserving the aircraft for future use as a historical display at a Massachusetts base. The challenging project was both a business and personal honor for our staff, many of whom have close family members who are active or retired members of the military. Shrink wrapping an historic aircraft for several years of storage without damaging it was a testament to our expansive knowledge and experience in the process and artful skill of shrink wrapping gained through years of work on a wide range of projects, including military aircraft and vehicles of all types.
“Atlantic Shrink Wrap was able to pull knowledge from their many years of wrapping aircraft and aviation equipment to prove to the government that they could do it better , faster and cheaper than the governments request. And with no chance of damage to the aircraft.”

We were humbled as we worked on site in Massachusetts, surrounded by many current members of the military as they went about their daily routines. Over the course of two days, three Atlantic Shrink Wrap employees used over 4,000 Sq Ft of shrink wrap to complete the project
