From its humble foundation in a 60m² workshop in 1978, Nova has developed progressively in order to meet the growing demand of the signage and corporate identity implementation industry. In 1987 it started operating from a 2000m² factory but soon realized that this capacity was not going to be sufficient to keep abreast with the changing business environment. Around this time the BP group became the first petroleum company in Turkey to totally change its corporate identity, and Nova was selected to carry out most of the re-branding of its stations. To coincide with this, Nova relocated to larger site and from the year 1990 to 2006 it carried out production in a 20,000m² factory.
In 1997 Sinerji, a construction company was established and become a part of the Nova Group, and in 2002 Nova expanded its premises and opened a wood plant. Other important landmarks in Nova’s history include:
- In 1999, winning its first major international contract to re-brand 23 Agip petrol stations in Germany
- In 2002, becoming sole sign supplier for the re-imaging of 60 Nissan sites in the Middle East and Mediterranean area
- In 2003, re-branding 680 Aral stations in Germany following the acquisition of Aral by British Petroleum
- In 2003, re-signing 1200 Randstad sites throughout Europe
- In 2003, re-signing 250 PAZ stations in Israel
- In 2006, being awarded the 'Project Sapphire' interior furniture programme for GME across 38 European countries.
At the beginning of 2007, Nova moved to its new premises where it supplies clientele from a state of the art, 55,000m² factory. At the same time Nova made some significant changes to its business structure: it gained strength and depth by taking on Tahincioglu Holding as local partners.
