From Start-up to Growth: How a New Forestry Company Achieved Success

Foresterie Yannick Chabot is a young company from Amos, QC founded in 2012 by Yannick Chabot, owner and president. Chabot started as an operator on conventional feller-bunchers. Then, in 2012 as harvesting was becoming more and more popular, he was offered an opportunity to start his own operation with a harvesting contract for PNG Logging in Northern Ontario.


Foresterie Yannick Chabot progressed quickly from tracked machines to brand new Komatsu wheeled equipment. With support from SMS Equipment Timmins and Komatsu Financial, Chabot acquired a 931XC harvester and two wheeled-forwarders (Komatsu 865 and 895). Chabot and his team have been thrilled with the comfort and ease of operation, fuel economy, and the low maintenance cost of their Komatsu machines. They are particularly impressed by the level of service they continue to receive from the Timmins team.
