Athlon’s 100-year history

View the film about Athlon’s 100-year history



From repairs to modern mobility solutions

Athlon has undergone tremendous changes over the past 100 years. Athlon was founded in 1916 and was called RIVA (Repair Establishment for Automobiles). We started car leasing as far back as 1950 and in 1991 RIVA NV was renamed as Athlon Group. Following various acquisitions, Athlon started focusing entirely on car leasing in 2002. And successfully too, because we are now one of the biggest leasing companies in the Netherlands! We’ve been more than ‘just’ a leasing company for some time now. We’re now helping our customers find new solutions to meet their changing mobility needs, such as private lease and mobility management.
