The Swedish flooring company Bolon was founded in 1949. The family firm is owned and run by sisters Annica and Marie Eklund, the third generation of Eklunds to own the company. From its origins as a traditional manufacturer of woven flooring, the company has developed into an internationally successful design company with a focus on superior quality innovative flooring. Bolon was the first company in the world to produce woven vinyl floor coverings and has always designed all of its floors itself. The highly unique way in which the flooring is produced together with its range of design options have created tremendous international interest in the product. It looks like a textile floor covering yet has all the practical advantages of vinyl flooring, particularly when it comes to long-life and maintenance.
The products are sold in more than 30 countries today and Bolon’s customers include well-known companies such as Chanel, Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Lacoste, Sheraton and high-profile architects and designers such as Tom Dixon, Jean Nouvel and Renzo Piano. All Bolon floors are produced for public environments with a focus on hotels, shops and offices. They meet all the stringent standards for fire safety, wear and durability, sound insulation, etc.
Bolon has been implementing a progressive and inclusive environmental improvement programme in all areas of its operations for many years. Bolon works continuously to update its products to meet the stringent environmental requirements of the market. Bolon has been certified to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems since 1999.
