Our story

The company's story begins in 1998, when Omer Vallée was exploiting a woodlot in the Canadian municipality of Saint-Denis-de-Brompton, Quebec. He wanted to purchase an affordable, robust and easy-to-use portable sawmill for his personal projects. With the limited offer at that time, Mr. Vallée realized that no manufacturer could offer a model that exactly met his needs. Omer Vallée decided to build his own portable sawmill.

His first prototype was not even finished yet and was already attracting potential buyers. At that time, the idea of commercializing his machine was far from his minds. At the insistence of one of his neighbors, he finally agreed to build a second portable sawmill and sell it to him. One thing led to another and in no time Omer's portable sawmill was the talk of the town. The Vallee portable sawmill was born.

The company grew steadily but modestly in the early years. Omer Vallée built several portable sawmills in his free time with the help of his son Pascal. In 2008, Pascal Vallée took over the reins of the company with the desire to introduce his products to the greatest number of recreational sawyers. To do so, he developed several models to diversify the company's offer and then travelled to forestry events across Quebec to promote the brand.

Since its creation, Vallee Forestry Equipment has sold thousands of portable sawmills and other forestry products across Canada and the United States. It now has a team of more than 30 employees as well as a network of dedicated dealers. More recently, the company introduced the Red Runner product line to increase its entry-level product offering for amateur and occasional forestry workers.
