Volvo CE Dealer Acquired by Nors Group

Portugal-based Nors Group is expanding its heavy equipment footprint in North America with the acquisition of Great West, a Volvo Construction Equipment dealer in western Canada that covers the British Columbia and Yukon provinces.

Nors sells, rents and services construction, infrastructure, mining and forestry equipment, as well as Volvo trucks, buses, cars and marine and industrial engines in 17 countries on four continents. Nors acquired Strongco Corporation (Strongco) in March 2020 for its first entry into the Canadian market.

“Nors has been a great partner in North America through its subsidiary, Strongco, and I know this move will benefit our customers in western Canada,” said Scott Young, head of Region North America, Volvo CE. “Great West has been a vital link in our dealer network, serving some of the most remote areas of western Canada. We are grateful for their two decades with Volvo CE and excited that we’ll continue working together to serve customers in a quickly evolving industry.”

Headquartered in Vernon, BC, Great West has around 250 employees across 11 locations. Great West has been a Volvo CE dealer since 2002.
