BOLON SWEDEN: A THIRD GENERATION FAMILY BUSINESS, SINCE 1954
It’s a story we’ll never tire of hearing. 65 years ago in Stockholm, Sweden an idea sparked into life. Textile waste became rag rugs and Bolon was born. In many ways, our founder Nils-Erik Eklund was ahead of his time and today, his ability to see opportunity where others couldn’t still inspires us.
The man who lit the Bolon spark was our founder, Nils-Erik Eklund. Today, his grand daughters Annica and Marie keep the spirit alive. Since they took over the company from their parents Lars and Monica in 2003, they have been on a mission – to make Bolon a design-led innovator and fuse the conservative, traditional flooring branch with the boundless creativity of the world of fashion. That we have succeeded so spectacularly is satisfying. That in doing so, we’ve collaborated with world-renowned designers and architects as well as working with international brands makes us even more proud. However, pride is one thing and complacency is another – and standing still has never been an option here at Bolon. This is our continuing story – and we sincerely hope that through our innovative, challenging and world leading flooring it becomes your inspiration. Bolon continues to expand its markets, adding Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg (Benelux) to the current group of affiliates. While thanking the previous Dutch distributor, Brandt, for a long and successful collaboration, Bolon from February 1st 2019 warmly welcomes the new sales team of Harm Bron, Mireille Burger and Willem-Jan Vereggen to Bolon. Working alongside agent Dave Van De Velde, responsible for Belgium and Luxembourg, the Dutch sales team will be able to collaborate very closely with local and regional architects, designers and installers in the Benelux area.
