Aurora, Colo., September 17, 2008 – Bona US, the North American subsidiary of Bona AB in Sweden and a world leader in hardwood floor finishing and floor care, today held its grand opening of the new Bona Northeast Regional Training Center in Bridgewater, Massachusetts.

More than 60 people attended the grand opening event at the 2,500 square foot facility, including five of Bona’s Northeast distributors representing Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Connecticut. Bona gave away 20 prizes to the attendees, including three Bona Back Vac’s to the following contractors: C & R Flooring, Groom Hardwood Flooring and Dan’s Floor Service.

“The new Bona Training Center provides the opportunity for contractors and distributors in the Northeast to have a more accessible location to learn about the hardwood flooring industry and Bona products. We are very excited to be able to invest in this facility to aid in more education to our business partners and customers, even during such a rough time in the market,” said Chad Nordhagen, director of marketing and product management. “Devoting our efforts to constantly expanding our education is extremely important in our industry. It builds trust with our customers and creates improved results for the end user.”

The new, unique center features 950 square feet of continuous wood flooring consisting of nine different hardwood species, primarily donated by Green River Lumber of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Schools and seminars held at the new facility will provide comprehensive class work and hands-on training in sanding and floor preparation, staining, sealing and finishing, troubleshooting problem floors, government and industry regulations, sales and customer relations and the use of Bona’s quality finishing systems and cleaning products.
