ENTREPRENEURIAL PROFILE: Dr. Roy Archambault: DryCorp
DryCorp, located in Willmington, North Carolina, manufactures products that help waterproof other products. DryCorp, which was founded by Dr. Roy Archambault, developed its first line of products to waterproof casts, bandages, ostomies, and prosthetics using a rubber sleeve. The product allows patients to swim, bathe, shower, and to receive hydrotherapy without any damage to the medical product protected by the sleeve.
DryCorp also is developing a line of products that are crystal clear bags that vacuum seal electronic devices while still allowing them to be fully functional. Products include cases for tablets, earphones and backpacks.
Since DryCorp’s products are highly seasonal, its distributors focused on markets such as Australia that have opposite seasons to the U.S.[i]
