After working in the industry for several years, Bryan Jones founded Nova Steel in Montreal in 1979 and established a work ethic that would see the company grow quickly and evolve with the times.

1980s

In the mid-1980s, Bryan purchased and installed a brand new state-of-the-art tube mill and continued to expand the capabilities of the business, helping expand the reach and sales of his business, and setting precedent for the constant innovation that Nova Steel is now known for.
