Driven by mobility

Athlon started as a local repair shop more than 100 years ago when the automobile was an innovative concept in the field of mobility. We saw a future in it. And we felt determined to make the most of it. Today, our work is charged with a century of expertise and enthusiasm.

    Spirit of a pioneer

    Athlon was founded in 1916, starting out as a local car repair shop, operating under the name: RIVA: Reparatie-Inrichting voor Automobielen (Repair Company for Automobiles). What started with a fascination for automobiles has grown into an international, customer-centric mobility specialist.
