Hewitt Group Inc. was formed in late 2017 following the sale of Hewitt Equipment Limited, the operating company of the Hewitt family since 1952.

Jim Hewitt and his son David determined that forming a direct private equity group was the best way to remain active investors and builders in the Eastern Canadian economy.


Over more than six decades, the Hewitt Group has built a solid reputation, both nationally and internationally, and has a proven track record on how to successfully run a business and the importance of having a long-term and patient vision.

We have in-depth regional knowledge and are very well connected throughout Eastern Canada and continue to help build the country’s landscape and grow the economy.

We have a solid financial base and are well positioned to make quick investment decisions with, and in companies which have a long-term vision and a solid business plan.


We offer a long-term approach, driving value, looking beyond quarterly results, working collaboratively with successful management teams and adding operational knowledge and expertise.


The Hewitt family has built a strong reputation nationally and internationally over 65 years based on solid Values, continuous collaboration and learning, and a drive for success. 


Hewitt Equipment Limited was founded in 1952 by the late Robert Hewitt. His son, Jim Hewitt was named President of the Company in 1983 and led it to expand its network to 52 branches and surpassing the billion-dollar mark in sales in 2012.
