Global shrink wrap supply and service company Mr. Shrinkwrap was contracted to cover several dozen components of heat recovery and power generation equipment at the Cedar Rapids, Iowa plant of General Mills. The project is in preparation for wintertime outdoor storage of process and power equipment while a building is being constructed to house an expanded heat recovery project that has received national acclaim for increasing the plant’s energy efficiency.

Kevin Comerford, President of Mr. Shrinkwrap explains, “In addition to covering valuable equipment from the weather, having the components on-site and ready for installation saves time and logistics expenses. Shrink wrap is a versatile solution to many weather-related challenges on the construction site from covering idle equipment to enclosing areas under construction; in all applications we find that it’s about preserving value and maintaining a schedule.”

The Cedar Rapids General Mills plant employs over 750 people full time producing cereals, fruit snacks and Betty Crocker frosting, generating over $1.5 billion in annual sales. The plant is the largest General Mills plant in terms of sales volume and amount of product produced. The heat recovery project is an example of many initiatives the Cedar Rapids plant has taken to save General Mills $4.3 million per year in energy costs, cutting the facility’s total energy bill by more than a third.

Mr. Shrinkwrap’s mobile installation team of three technicians and one supervisor arrived on the job site Monday, Nov. 28 and “wrapped up” the project early on Friday, Dec. 2. Since 1991, Mr. Shrinkwrap has evolved from a local boat covering service to a business with a national scope, offering on-site shrink wrap services and becoming a leading distributor of shrink film, poly film, heat guns, shrink wrap tape, preservation tape, stretch wrap, self-adhering films, and shrink wrap supplies.
