Dealership History

Nova International Ltd. has been your best choice for agricultural equipment and heavy construction equipment  for nearly 40 years. That is a long history of outstanding service to customers throughout Atlantic Canada and Canada coast to coast (not to mention internationally, of course). These years of experience lends to the company's success, in an industry where customers are knowledgeable and discerning, and demand that the people they buy their heavy equipment and agricultural equipment from, know at least as much as they do about the machinery... if not more!

Before founding Nova International, Wayne Forrest already had a great deal of heavy agricultural equipment experience as a manager of Scotian Gold Industrial Sales, where Massey Ferguson backhoes and farm tractors were the equipment he dealt with each and every day. In March of 1979, he took that expertise to establish an IH (International Harvester) dealership specializing in agricultural equipment and light trucks. This was just the beginning of decades of growth for the small, but reputable operation in the small town of Windsor, NS.

In 1984, Wayne's heavy equipment operation became a Case IH dealer, after IH was acquired by Case Equipment. In the years to come, Nova International would pick up a number of new flags, including Kubota in 1999, assorted forestry products in 2000 from Kesla, New Holland Construction Equipment in 2001, Kobelco  in 2002, Komac hydraulic breakers in 2008 and Doosan heavy equipment in 2011.The operation currently has three locations in Atlantic Canada. (Windsor & Aylesford, N.S., Moncton, N.B.)

Despite all the changes that have taken place at Nova International, there remains the outstanding commitment to service, support, and quality of equipment. Today, we maintain the same values as Wayne did, decades ago, that has made Nova International your best choice for new and used heavy, construction and agricultural equipment such as Kubota, Kobelco, Doosan, New Holland Construction, Komac, Norse and Kesla/Patu.

David Lothian, Wayne Forrest's son-in-law now runs the day-to-day business activities along with several other family members. 

We are a generational business that prides ourselves in low employee turnover with excellent customer service that the customer deserves.
