The Guide to Stretch Wrap

Stretch wrapping pallets by hand can be one of the most grueling, disliked jobs in any warehouse, packaging, or shipping department. Despite the overwhelming lack of enthusiasm for this particular task, it’s one of the most important when it comes to moving, storing, and shipping large quantities of goods—specifically on pallets.

Stainless steel distributor protects valuable fittings, speeds packaging and cuts costs with new orbital wrapping machine

Bob Hunter felt a hint of apprehension almost every time he shipped an order out to a  customer.  As branch manager for Ta Chen International’s Houston, Texas operations, he  manages the comings and goings of more than one million pounds of stainless steel per  day for the master distributor of stainless, aluminum and nickel alloy coils, sheets, plates,  long products, tubes and fittings.

Full-Service Metals Manufacturer Cuts Reject Rate in Half with Automated Wrapping Machinery

When considering the many steps involved in producing polished medical equipment, finished office equipment and a host of metal components and parts from design, manufacture and finishing to assembly, inspection and delivery, and when considering the  time, effort and costs involved with each step, it seems that packaging and shipping for  delivery would be the easiest parts of the process.

Spring 2017 Employee Appreciation Day

Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.” At TAB Industries, LLC we couldn’t agree more with that sentiment.

From the beginning, it was TAB Industries’ goal to provide an inviting and stimulating work environment. By doing so, we felt that we would be able to attract an ambitious, knowledgeable, and dedicated workforce. We are happy to announce that we have achieved this goal.

In appreciation of all the hard work that our crew has performed over the past few months, TAB Industries recently celebrated its Spring 2017 Employee Appreciation Day. The event was held at a Reading Fightin Phils minor league baseball game and the crew was treated to a buffet lunch. The weather was great and a fun day was had by all.

TAB Industries, LLC would like to extend a big thank you to our staff. Without your hard work and dedication, our success would not be possible!

TAB Industries, LLC. has recently built our two largest units to date. In March a custom 125″ TAB WRAPPER TORNADO and an even bigger custom 130″ TAB WRAPPER TORNADO rolled off our assembly line. The 125″ unit was designed to accommodate a max pallet size of 107″ tall x 48″ wide x infinite length, while the 130″ unit was designed to accommodate a max pallet size of 85.5″ tall x 74.5″ wide x infinite length.

All our add-on options and safety features can still be installed on the larger custom units.

These larger units work great for securing large profile loads for shipment. If your company has large profile loads that one of our three standard models can’t accommodate, please let us know and we can design a custom unit that will work for your application.
