A creative spirit, the firm’s driving force

PRECIA-MOLEN is the story of an outstanding man: Jean ESCHARAVIL. He founded the company in 1951 and dedicated his entire soul, energy and entrepreneurial spirit to the development of his fledgling company, PRECIA

Thanks to Jean ESCHARAVIL and his team, the foundations of this “success story” were laid. The quality of our expertise, our continuing research and development and our ability to meet the requirements of our customers places PRECIA-MOLEN as a world leader in the weighing industry.

Today, our design and engineering teams continue to build on more than 50 years of expertise while maintaining the fundamental PRECIA-MOLEN philosophy of development and stability, innovation and reliability.

We listen to our customer’s needs. As their businesses develop and requirements change, so we design and deliver new products to meet the challenges presented to us. This is a business synergy we strive to maintain and enhance.
