A family company

The Crête family has been in the wood business since 1949. In 1996, Gestion S. Crête Inc. acquired the assets of Rabotage Guérette Inc. Three years later, the company was completely destroyed by a fire.

In 1999, Maxi-Forêt, the Gestion S.Crête Inc. division, was created. The company purchased a 110,000 square-foot building on a 2,700,000 square-foot property and started its operations in St-Jérôme.

In 2013, Maxi-Forêt opened a branch in Trois-Rivières to better serve central and eastern Québec.
