International expansion has not prevented PRECIA MOLEN from keeping its roots in Ardèche. Through each of its 1150 employees, the Group maintains the values which accompanied Jean Escharavil’s small artisanal business from its founding in 1951 to its technological evolutions and its standing on the world stage.

A Family Business

Throughout its history and its development, the PRECIA MOLEN Group has made a point of keeping a management style that is close to the one it had when it started as an artisanal family business. Listening, caring, solidarity, training, career opportunities: such are the values which allow our employees to find their place in the company and thrive.

Varied Professions, Career Opportunities and Openings Abroad


  • Research and development, manufacturing, sales, service, IT, marketing, regulation: the trades at PRECIA MOLEN are demanding and technical; they require know-how and constant attention. Innovation is one of our main axes of development, intervening in product design and updates, but also in the improvement of working conditions for our employees, with new manufacturing tools, for instance.



  • We believe it is possible to hold several jobs during the span of a professional life. Evolution in the trades and gateways between the departments allow each employee to develop their skills and put them to the service of the company.


  • New subsidiaries and representative offices opening abroad provide opportunities for potential expatriates to represent PRECIA MOLEN around the world while catering to their desire for new horizons.

PRECIA MOLEN’s Commitment to Protecting the Environment

PRECIA MOLEN is rooted in an area where proximity to nature is a way of life. Environmental protection is a matter of course that we have integrated in our processes from the early stages to waste recovery. This commitment is one of the key challenges in our international development, with the intent of engaging everyone, locally, in the preservation of our planet and its resources.

PRECIA MOLEN’s Involvement in Sports

PRECIA MOLEN sponsors its employees on a regular basis, whether as a team or individually, in sports competitions. We believe that the promotion of such achievements, large and small, and the strengthening of relationships which comes with them, play a part in personal development for every participant, in both their private and professional lives. For instance, about thirty employees enroll for the inter-company challenge each year at l’Ardéchoise, a world-famous mass cycling event. On another front, PRECIA MOLEN is a partner for a local women’s handball team in D2 FFHB, the highest level of all team sports in Ardèche.

PRECIA MOLEN also regularly lends weighing equipment for large sports events (World Weightlifting Championships, boxing events, rowing, motor sports, …).

To join PRECIA MOLEN, in France or abroad, is to work for a booming company which managed to combine the family spirit of its beginnings and the high stakes of expansion and globalization.
