Our Culture

At BOLD, we’re happy to have the best of both worlds. We’ve got highly skilled people who work with state-of-the art technology, equipment, and processes just like you’d find at a major manufacturer. But as a small (and growing) company, we still have the relationships and expectations that keep us deeply engaged in our work and our future together.

Be Bold

Be Inventive

We're constantly learning, flexing our problem-solving muscles.

Be Influential

Our Approach

We hire top-notch people who care about details to bring together custom craftsmanship and the best of mass production techniques.

Our Environmental Promise

At BOLD, we believe that we owe future generations an environment that offers them the same potential—for health, livelihoods, and delight—that we’ve enjoyed.

Our commitment to sustainability includes cradle-to-cradle design practices. We plan manufacturing to minimize waste, and take into account needs for water and electricity. We use recycled materials whenever appropriate, and design for easy recovery and reuse of materials. Our finishes and glues are water-based, emitting no VOCs.
