Two brothers with a dream
In 1959 Enrico Colussi and his brother, Giovanni Colussi started 'Colussi Brothers' and went on to become Colussi Engineering Pty Ltd in 1968. Some years later they identified a need for a better pump product in the pest control industry and engaged Lorri Tescari, an old engineer from the days of Maurlyn to create Nova Pumps. Lorri's experience helped the brothers to create a robust and innovative pump fit for the service duty of the industry.

With their new Nova Pump product originally powered with Briggs & Stratton motors, eventually the brothers transitioned use Honda motors, somewhere in the 1980s. Every time the Japanese Honda Engineers came to Australia, they would come to visit the brothers with cameras in hand to see what they were doing with Honda's motor technology.
Now Australian's #1
Nova Pumps eventually took over 100% of the pest control industry for its simplicity and reliability. We still produce them today to the original patterns, refusing to cut corners on quality and materials.
