Bona is proud of their history. Back in 1894, the 26-year old Wilhelm Edner opened a small grocery shop in Malmö, Sweden where he sold coffee. The business went well and during the 1910’s, floor wax came into the picture – a completely new product to the Swedish market.
Within five years, floor polish, mop oil, dry floor cleaner, waxing equipment, and other floor care products were added. More than 90 years later, those simple origins have developed into a company that leads the industry and sets standards worldwide.
Bona brings you innovation, consistent performance and the highest quality the industry has to offer. Bona’s concern for health and the environment are testament to their dedication. You will see it in the longevity and beauty of your floors. It’s why Bona has been trusted by professionals since 1919.
As a family-owned company, Bona has dedicated itself to the world community and our shared future. Such a long term commitment to innovation requires a sustainable philosophy that incorporates and considers living environments, both indoors and outdoors. They continually strive for effective products with ever-lessening environmental impact.
Bona was the first manufacturer in the industry to offer a complete hardwood floor finishing and care system that is GREENGUARD certified for indoor air quality. The certification assures professionals and consumers unsurpassed durability, beauty, and environmental responsibility for hardwood floors. Bona’s specially-developed non-toxic formula also limits the harmful effects of downstream pollution.
Bona waterborne finishes have no toxic fumes and low VOCs so they are healthier for your family, pets and the environment. In addition, there is no need to vacate your home during the finishing process due to fast dry times and easy water clean-up. This Swedish waterborne technology highlights the true beauty and elegance of the wood and provides the ultimate in durability. It too is GREENGUARD certified for indoor air quality.
At Bona, they reuse materials within their own production line and also design their products to reduce landfill clutter. Their Hardwood and Stone, Tile & Laminate Floor Care Systems in reusable shopping totes eliminate the typical throw-away outer box.
