Company history

An almost century-old company

Raynaud Jeune was founded in 1928 by Elisée Raynaud, in Mazamet, then the world capital for the wool industry and trade.

François Raynaud took over in 1948 and bought the current factory in the 1970s, which was built in 1892.

Since the 1970s, Raynaud Jeune  has developed, improved, modernized its facilities and equipement, and invested heavily in the preservation of the environment and sustainability.

The company is still run today, for more than 30 years by Olivier Raynaud, 3rd generation.

Our commitments

A permanent concern about the preservation of the environement

Raynaud Jeune works constantly with the greatest respect for the environment and for the well-being of future generations.

Until recently, many important investments have been made to preserve the environment, leading to a sharp reduction of our ecological footprint.

These investments secure the company and ensure its sustainability for the years to come.

Treacability Safety Quality

These are the watchwords of responsible production.
