History

Autolog was born in 1987 out of three areas of expertise united by a common dream. Daniel Éthier and Sylvain Magnan were trained system programmers while André Nadeau had sales experience connected to the sawmill industry. In 2011, Mr. Magnan took over the reins of the company. Sole owner of Autolog, he surrounded himself with a winning team of specialists, setting the standard in the automation sector.
