ETS JAULENT was created by Mr Gérard JAULENT in 1976 (technician in aeronautical mechanics employed for 10 years at the Aerospatiale), an individual company working in the agricultural mechanics sector. Since October 1st 1996, the individual company has become a limited liability company with a capital of 122 000,00€.
Its activity began with the subcontracting and repair of agricultural machinery and today is 95% focused on the design of agricultural machinery and more particularly on plasticulture equipment. At present, the company employs about ten people.
In 1987, he designed a machine for unrolling agricultural films and placing the plastics on mini hoops. This machine is patented. Several thousand machines were produced and sold in France and abroad. At the same time, he filed a second patent for a decompactor.
Since 1987, Mr JAULENT has registered more than 30 patents, several trademarks and registered designs.
Today, the company has a workshop of 1,200 m² and a design office and two sales offices with a total surface area of 100 m², as well as CAD equipment, all on a 1 ha site.
Plasticulture, market gardening and nursery equipment.
Little by little, the company has spread beyond the department. Its production is now distributed throughout France, including the French overseas departments and territories, and abroad (exports accounted for 40% of turnover in 2014 and 60% in 2019), particularly in Algeria, Austria, South Africa, Germany, Belgium, Ivory Coast, Denmark, St Domingue, Spain, Ghana, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, Madagascar, Morocco, Portugal, Sweden, Tunisia, Turkey, Venezuela, Romania, Ukraine, St Pierre et Miquelon, etc.
Through the technological quality of the equipment it manufactures and distributes, the company has achieved a certain notoriety. Mr JAULENT’s skills and know-how, and his sense of observation, contribute greatly to this success.

Future of the company
Many parameters force us to evolve. Cultivation methods are constantly evolving; our customers are faced with increasing costs and a shortage of labour; our range, already well oriented towards plasticulture, needs to be completed and improved. These are the reasons that lead us to develop and create different machines.
