Meet our people

What’s it like to work at Bona? What makes everyday at work an enjoyable experience? What is it that drives us to bring out the best in everything?

Being a family owned company for almost 100 years, we have created a family spirit within Bona – not just in Malmö where the company was founded in 1919, but also among the local employees in our subsidiaries and partners around the world.

Bona has developed into an international company and yet the strong sense of family remains, enhancing cooperation on a personal level across borders and functions. We strive to be a learning organisation where we share experiences and learn from one another’s expertise.

At Bona we encourage new ideas that bring market opportunities to the company and aid in our employees’ personal development.

We are a highly qualified, motivated, creative, enthusiastic and committed team. With our joint passion for wooden floors, we strive to meet our customers’ needs in the best possible way all around the world. 

Today, our team consists of about 550 Bona colleagues in 16 countries. Let’s hear from a few of them here.

“I am responsible for the sales of Bona’s Do-It-Yourself range in Austria and Germany, where we are present in nearly 100% of the DIY market. For sure, having a dedicated team of colleagues where everyone’s contribution is valued, is a key driver for this success, and for making Bona a great workplace.” – Ernst Aigner, Key Account Manager, Austria

“I am responsible for the Safety, Health, and Environmental regulatory compliance for Bona US. In my role, I am a resource for employees and those outside of Bona, both customers and governmental officials, who require information on Safety, Health and the Environment whether it be a report, safety data sheet, or presentation. My job gives me the opportunity to impact those around me in a positive way. Bona is a great place to learn and grow professionally with the assistance of a great team atmosphere.” – Lisa King, SHE Specialist, USA

“I am working at the R&D-IC laboratory in Malmö. Here, we have various responsibilities. I normally work with long-term projects in waterborne products, but it is quite common that I also serve our customers with tailor-made colours or other products. Working for Bona gives me a lot of experience, also on a personal level, when I meet different people like colleagues and customers all over the world.” – Karin Tykesson, Development Engineer, Industrial Coatings
