Bona US hits the hardwood with the NBA
Aurora, Colo.-based Bona US, the hardwood floor care and maintenance company, will be an Official Hardwood Floor Care Partner of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
Many NBA teams are already playing on floors finished with Bona including the New Orleans Hornets, San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors and Denver Nuggets.
“We are happy with the Bona products on our new practice court and our game court at Air Canada Centre the home of the Toronto Raptors,” said Bob Hunter, executive VP of venues and entertainment, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. “We have to know that our floors can stand up to the wear and tear of our busy facility and still provide a great surface for our players and Bona was a good choice.”
Bona provides a complete system of sport products, including waterborne and oil modified finishes, machines, abrasives adhesives and a fast, effective maintenance system.
“Bona products have been used in NBA and top collegiate gyms for years”, said John Rauvola, managing director, Bona US. “We are very excited to now be formally recognized as an Official Hardwood Floor Care Partner of the NBA.”
The technology used in the products for NBA floors is also used in Bona’s residential finishes.
