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.


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 expanding the reach and sales of his business, and setting precedent for the constant innovation that Nova Steel is now known for.


A true family business, Bryan’s son Scott Jones joined the company in 1991. Today, Scott serves as President and CEO, and continues his father’s legacy in the Steel industry.


Worth an estimated $200 million in 1996, Nova Steel doubled its size by purchasing American Steel and Aluminum, a company south of the border.


Over the next 25 years, Nova Steel Group continued to expand and evolve its network and core competencies. In 2022, several new facilities will join the company’s portfolio in Canada, US and Mexico.

Today we offer value-added steel products and solutions serving some of the largest industries in North America; from Automotive to Building and Construction, Infrastructure, Mining, Rail and Defense.
