EACOM’s Matagami sawmill is located in the town of Matagami, Quebec, some 776 km northwest of Montreal.
Colloquially known as the door to James Bay, Matagami’s location in Northern Quebec makes it a prime destination for fishing and hunting. The town of Matagami was established in 1963 shortly after the discovery of mineral deposits including zine, copper and gold. It is named for the Cree First Nation word meaning “meeting of the waters”.
Bisson and Bisson established the first sawmill in Matagami in 1968. Following a fire in 1974, the company relocated the sawmill to the industrial park. The Ayotte Family acquired controlling interest in Bisson and Bisson in 1979 and invested in modernizing the mill and its equipment.
The mill was acquired by Domtar Inc. in 1998 and finally by EACOM in 2010.
