Atlantic Shrink Wrapping Inc. was created by Dustin Hoover and Christopher Grimm in 2001. The goal was to create a shrink wrapping installation company that would be a leader in the industry. Their company offers an array of shrink wrapping services that are listed and detailed on their website. ASI saw a key moment in the evolution of their company when they were asked to complete shrink wrapping on a huge and delicate scientific instrument from Brookhaven National Laboratories. The instrument was a scientific cryostat, and it needed to be prepped for shipment by truck and barge.
Before seeking help from ASI, Brookhaven National Laboratories had asked a Florida-based shrink wrap company to do the job, but only eleven days before the scientific cryostat was to be transported, the Florida company backed out. ASI was ecstatic when they got the call for the job after this happened. They were eager to get the job done right and sent a crew from Maryland to New York to get to work.
The first step required taking the large instrument from the Brookhaven National Laboratories building. It had a diameter of over fifty feet. The main goal of the project was to protect the instrument from sea spray that would contain salt during the trip overseers on the barge. The gauges and pumps at the front of the unit were most sensitive and needed the most protection. To achieve this goal, the ASI experts installed padding before shrink wrapping the most sensitive areas. In the end, both the experts at the lab and the shipping company were very impressed by the entire operation. It was a great project for ASI to be a part of.
