Aurora, Colorado, March 23, 2009 – Bona US, the North American subsidiary of Bona AB in Sweden and the world leader in hardwood floor finishing and floor care, was awarded the 25th Annual Golden Hammer Award for its complete floor care product line. This is Bona US’s second time winning the award.

The prestigious Golden Hammer Awards are presented annually by Home Channel News.  Roughly 500 top retailers vote on a variety of product categories and are asked to select exemplary vendors based on category management, inventory management, new product innovation, quality control and serving pros.

Bona US received the most votes in its respective category to once again receive the award which recognizes the company as an elite supplier. The winning criterion, which is based on 32 categories, acknowledges Bona as a company that has demonstrated the greatest overall commitment in support of retailer sales, marketing and partnership efforts.

“Receiving this recognition for the second time truly marks an outstanding achievement for Bona,” said Barry Sopinsky, director of retail sales. “It is a true testament of our commitment to providing effective, safe, and easy-to-use products while constantly supporting our partnerships and customer relations. Thanks to the people that voted for Bona; we truly believe in our products and our customers and we appreciate that it is acknowledged.”

The 2009 Golden Hammer Awards will be presented during The National Hardware Show in Las Vegas, NV, on May 5, 2009.
