Nor-Val Equipment Rentals History
Nor-Val Equipment Rentals was founded in Armstrong in 1994 by Paul and Shirley Miron along with their son Jim Clipperton. The strong need for a rental store in Armstrong and the great customer service provided by Paul and Jim allowed the company to grow very quickly.
By 1998 Nor-Val Equipment Rentals had a number of customers in Vernon and took the opportunity to add a store there. The expansion into Vernon proved to be very successful and this store quickly became the busiest store.
Paul and Shirley retired from the business in 2006, at which time Nor-Val took on two new partners.
In 2010 Nor-Val Rentals was approached by a Volvo Rents store in Lake Country with an offer to sell that location. The proximity to the other Nor-Val stores and the prospect of growth in Lake Country made this offer hard to resist, so Nor-Val Rentals grew with its third location.
In 2015 Jim Clipperton became the sole owner of Nor-Val Rentals. At this time, Jim and his team implemented an aggressive expansion plan that saw the company grow its equipment offerings and look at expansion south. In 2019 an ideal highway location became available and the team completely renovated the property and building to open their new West Kelowna location.
The company grew again in 2020 with the opening of a location in Kelowna – making it their fifth location and over 80 team members valley wide. That same year, Nor-Val added a new division to their brand – Nor-Val Equipment Sales – as a Bobcat Authorized Dealer, with a strong focus on sales of other new and used equipment lines carried in the rental division.
