SelecTech Celebrates 25 Years of Business
Avon, MA, September 5, 2018-SelecTech, Inc., a manufacturer of flooring products with long-term value and immediate benefits, recently celebrated its 25th year in business.
Founders Thomas Ricciardelli and Michael King’s first endeavor was repurposing plastic wrap from pallets and creating planters. Those planters sold at big box stores like Home Depot and Walmart. Thus, began SelecTech back in 1993.
The company was then approached by Dupont to find a use for old carpeting removed from homes and offices. After some research and experimentation, the pair developed an industrial flooring tile that ultimately became Dupont’s Reptile. It was shortly after this time, SelecTech developed their soon-to-be patented glueless “zipper” interlocking system that enables the flooring to be installed over existing flooring with minimal subfloor preparation. Ultimately, Dupont closed down its flooring operation.
SelecTech went on to develop three lines of flooring products-FreeStyle for commercial; StaticStop for ESD; and Place N Go for residential. These products employ a breakthrough interlocking technology that dramatically reduces installation times, completely bypassing the need for adhesives and floor prep to install or replace flooring. Because machinery does not have to be completely moved or removed for installation, downtime for businesses can be minimized or even eliminated altogether.
Sticking to its initial premise of utilizing recycled materials, SelecTech flooring products are made using recycled material and are 100% recyclable. Some of the industries that utilize SelecTech flooring products include electronics manufacturing, communications, aerospace, biotech, healthcare industries, and other high-tech industries.
