Selco Celebrates 80th Anniversary
Selco, Tulsa, Okla., a custom watch manufacturer and supplier company, announced its celebration of 80 years in business. Selco is an award-winning supplier in the promotional products industry, manufacturing dials in the U.S. for its own lines, Selco Geneve and A*Belle Promotional Time, as well as many other retail lines.
The third generation, family-owned company started in 1935 as a retail jewelry store. By 1980, the company had shifted focus to watch customization and merged their 50 retail stores into a division of Zales Corporation. The company is led by president and CEO, Mark Abels; his father, Larry Abels, is chairman of the board.
"I am constantly blown away by the talent and dedication our staff encompasses," said Mark. "We wouldn't be here without our outstanding team, the best suppliers or a very loyal group of the most creative distributors in the business. It is an honor and a privilege for me to get to lead a company with so much history and such a bright future ahead."
Earlier this year, Selco took home four gold awards for their customization methods, and one silver for their self-promotion campaign at the PPAI Awards presentation and reception held in January at the House of Blues in Las Vegas.
A company luncheon is scheduled for the Selco team to celebrate the 80-year milestone.
