SelecTech to Exhibit at Upcoming Lab Design Conference
New Orleans, LA and Avon, MA, April 21, 2022 -- SelecTech, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of

Design Conference being held May 10-11 at the Hilton Riverside, Two Poydras St, New Orleans, LA.

crisis. Our interlocking flooring products have served this need well as it can easily be installed for a
temporary facility and then removed and used somewhere else,” said Ricciardelli. “The portability factor
has also been important with the growth of labs during the last several years. Rather than buying
entirely new tiles for a lab, our interlocking p
