About Green Diamond Equipment Ltd.

Our company is like the John Deere equipment we sell; held together by integrity, experience, pride, quality, and customer service. Each of our over 300 people across 14 Maritime locations live these values every day. We are proud to have been selling equipment to homeowners, farmers, landscapers, construction companies, golf course owners etc. for over thirteen years as Green Diamond Equipment.

As a Maritime owned and operated company, under the leadership of CEO Tina Sears, we have grown quite a bit since 2007. We started out as a joint venture with PEI Farm Equipment and Planter's Equipment. We have added new stores and acquired MacLeod's in Nova Scotia and merged with Reddin Equipment in PEI to bring us to our total of 14 branches across the three Atlantic provinces to serve you.

With the merger between Green Diamond Equipment and Reddin Equipment in 2016, we inherited the Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) line and now have 3 dealerships that are combination John Deere and BRP stores: Stratford and Summerside, PEI and Grand Falls, NB as well as a stand-alone BRP store in Sydney, NS. www.greendiamondpowersports.ca
