VERNON, B.C. – Nors Group, a Portugal-based renter and seller of construction, infrastructure, mining and forestry equipment, has purchased the entire stock of Great West Equipment, whose Volvo CE territory covers British Columbia and the Yukon.

With this transaction, which closed on March 1, Great West Equipment is officially a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nors Group. Great West, who have been a Volvo CE dealer since 2002, is headquartered in Vernon, B.C. and has around 250 employees across 11 locations.
