«To be a man is, precisely, to be responsible. It is to feel, when setting one's stone, that one is contributingto the building of the world.»
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
The PAMM story starts in 1987, when Marc Gauthier, freshly home from planting in the Canadian West, co-founds the company with Michel Renald. Back then, the planting industry is in its infancy in Quebec, but building on the expertise acquired on the west coast, the two young men quickly make their mark at home. Over the years, the company slowly carves a space for itself both in Abitibi and Nord-du-Québec and develops strong expertise in various aspects of forestry, combining performance and innovation.
Years later, PAMM attracts exceptional workers from around the world, men and women that share this same spirit of challenge, adventure and performance.
To us and our workers, the forest is a proud way of life.
In the pursuit of its ideals of continuous improvement, excellence and conformity to the highest standards, PAMM has acquired various certifications. The PGES certification program frames our management practices with respect to sub-contracting, health and safety and transparency. Also, our commitment towards the environment has lead us to acquire the ISO 14001 certification, which was obtained in 2016, making PAMM a leader in this area.
