About Us

For more than 35 years, L’Echelle Européenne (Elevation Equipment) network has been striving to find and offer the best solutions for accessing heights in complete safety and at the best price.

With 51 stores across France, Elevation Equipment is also present in Canada with 2 stores, Spain with 4 stores, Switzerland, Belgium and Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

As the Elevation Equipment family grows, we are now expanding in the UK, in Morocco and the US!

Required skills or interests

  • Experienced in B2B sales.
  • A dynamic, enthusiastic person who is willing to succeed.
  • Must have the ability to develop and grow the L’Echelle Européenne concept.

The Core Concept

All the products found in our Échelle Européenne stores enable our clients to carry out tasks such as climbing, working, passing and stopping in complete safety. This is why the business has been a major success.

  • CLIMBING, WORKING, PASSING and STOPPING at a certain height involves steps, ladders, and other devices such as platforms and protections. These are complex products that require advice and assistance before use.
  • KNOWING THE CLIENTS and their needs allows us to guide them towards the best technical solutions. These customers may consist of professionals, individuals, administrations and large or small businesses. We must adapt to each case, which requires good knowledge of products and safety rules.
  • SECURITY is one of the basic needs of mankind. We all think differently about heights and carrying out tasks at a height is incredibly dangerous when there are no safety precautions taken. The law demands compliance with health and safety regulations, which means that equipment such as ladders must be of the highest standard. This is where we come in.
