Founded in 1944, Bauwerk Parkett AG is the leading Swiss parquet manufacturer and the leading European supplier of two-layer parquet. The roots of Boen go far back into the 17th century when two sawmills near the Norwegian city of Kristiansand laid the foundation for today’s leading supplier of 3-layer parquet. By the merger of the two companies in June 2013 the new Bauwerk Boen AG becomes one of the worlds leading high end parquet manufacturer and Europe’s No. 2. The Group employs approx. 1'900 employees and produces approx. 9.5 Million m2 per year. The whole range of different parquets is offered by the two brands Bauwerk and Boen and is distributed through different sales channels in over 50 countries world wide. The key markets are Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Scandinavia. Bauwerk Boen operates factories in Lithuania, Croatia and Switzerland.
