Started with a grocery shop
At Bona we are proud of our history. Back in 1894, the 26 year old Wilhelm Edner opened a small grocery shop in Malmö where he sold coffee. The business went well and during the 1910s 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 had been added to the range. And about a century later we have developed into an international world leading company producing and selling a total solution for wooden floor treatment. We stick to what we are and what we do best.
