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 Group AG, our fleet has grown to more than 400.000 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, as a local car repair 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.
