Established in 2008 by former service engineer from the plant hire industry, ricoeurope has grown to become one of the leading UK Filter suppliers, specializing in all types of filtration
During Chris Rico’s time as a service manager for one of the UK’s leading provider of Access & Tele-handlers, it became apparent there was a niche in the market for a new type of filter supplier to supply a service such as we do today, going above and beyond adding value to our customers businesses.
Initially the company started by selling one type of fuel filter, the most common inline fuel filter, a Qty of 10,000 was purchased, and sold in relatively small quantities initially to contacts Chris already had within the industry and the remaining via e-commerce facilities online.
After 3 months of successful trading, ricoeurope became a distributor for Baldwin Filters.
- Chris left full time employment to commit fully to ricoeurope
- Concentrated heavily on filter application information, identifying filters for machinery, creating filter service kits, and introducing new suppliers.

In 2014 ricoeurope Launched it's own brand of filters: RE FILTERS initially with 30 items, increasing year on year today (2020) we have approximately 300 products in our own range.
