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.
Expertise and enthusiasm
Now a part of Mercedes-Benz Mobility AG, our fleet has grown to more than 400k vehicles. You’ll find us throughout Europe, pushing boundaries and preparing for the future. We simplify the lives of our customers by connecting fleet and mobility solutions.
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.
