Colorado based Bona US, the North American subsidiary of Bona AB in Sweden and major supplier of hardwood floor finishing
and floor care, will hold the grand opening of the Bona West Coast Regional Training Center (RTC) in Richmond, Calif., on
The facility is the fifth Bona RTC and second of its kind opened by Bona in the past year. The 2,200–sq.–ft.
space features a training panel made up of 14 different hardwood species and a medallion and patterned floor section
consisting of multiple wood types.
In addition, the training center offers a stair–training module for practicing more advanced flooring techniques and
a large open area specifically for vendor demonstrations. A one–tenth–scale basketball court on site displays the
Cal Berkley logo with Bona CourtLines Paint and provides a demo area available for using the Bona Sport Products.
"The new Bona West Coast Training Center provides another easily accessible location for contractors and distributors to
advance their skills with Bona products and the hardwood flooring industry. We have always invested in education and now,
with five training facilities throughout the country, we know we can be everywhere we need to be to continue building trust
in Bona and our products," said Chad Nordhagen, director of marketing and product management.
