« Success is an uncommon path, rarely tread by skittish feet.
But those who dare to forge ahead know not to wait on guarantees.
Because when you hesitate, others are doing.
And the right time never comes if you’re waiting in the wrong place.
So gather all the trusted news, tools and knowledge you can muster, and charge into the uncertain fray.
Where every dream has a fighting chance.
And history has no say on the merits of your ambitions. Because good things come to those who don’t wait.»

Founded in 2007 by president and main shareholder Cynthia Paquet, the company employs 4 people at its head office in St-Georges de Beauce and several sub-contractors in the Bois-Francs region.

Proud of its roots and of the professionalism and the devotion that are at the core of the values that contribute to the company’s success, Cymtek has been creating strategies and building partnerships with vendors and sawmills that share those same values and are motivated by the same passion for their work.
