OSDA Goes Solo with Purchase of FreeStyle Plus ESD Flooring
Milford -- SelecTech, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of innovative flooring products with long-term value and immediate benefits, recently announced the purchase of 7,500 square feet of its FreeStyle ESD Plus tile to OSDA for its electronics assembly facility in Milford, Connecticut. The transaction was brokered by Restronics.
Since 1987, OSDA has provided electronics assembly manufacturing services for prototypes a wide variety of technology firms. Its clientele includes such names Panasonic, Philips, IBM and Google. OSDA purchased the Blizzard style of SelecTech’s FreeStyle ESD Plus tiles because of the ease of installation—OSDA self-installed—and the fact the flooring could be installed around the existing equipment throughout the factory floor.
“OSDA had an epoxy floor and wanted something that provided a higher level of static control. Our FreeStyle ESD Plus met that criteria, was aesthetically pleasing, and could be self-installed without any downtime,” said Tom Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech. “Considering all these variables, along with the long-term maintenance savings, made this decision a win-win.”
StaticStop ESD and FreeStyle ESD Plus tiles employ a patented glueless “zipper” interlocking system that enables the flooring to be installed over existing flooring with minimal subfloor preparation. There’s no need for messy, toxic adhesive and down-time is significantly reduced—often times without need to close off an area.
Made with 70 percent recycled materials and 100 percent recyclable, FreeStyle ESD meets CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green.
FreeStyle ESD is available in Steel Blue, Off White, Gray and Platinum. FreeStyle ESD is also available in PLUS version, which has a conductive urethane finish for superior maintainability and comes in Apollo, Blizzard, Oasis, and Asteroid colors.
