Established in 2008 by a former Service Engineer from the Plant Hire industry, RICO Europe has grown to become one of the leading UK Filter suppliers, specialising in all types of filtration.
During Chris Rico’s time as a Service Manager for one of the UK’s leading providers of Access & Tele-handlers, it became apparent there was a niche market for a new type of filter supplier to supply the service such as we do today.
Going above and beyond, we’ve been 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 were sold via e-commerce facilities online.
After three months of successful trading, RICO Europe became a distributor for Baldwin Filters.
Chris left full time employment now fully committed to RICO Europe.

After working from home for the first two years, we were now ready to move to in to our first warehouse.

In 2014 Rico Europe Launched its own brand of filters: RE FILTERS.
Initially with 30 items, increasing year on year, today we have over 400 products in our own range.
Through our strong network of manufacturers and trusted partners we’ve been able to develop reliable and trustworthy filters fit for a wide range of industries.
With the addition of our own brand of filters and being appointed distributers for other leading filter manufacturers, we were ready for further expansion!

In 2017 RICO Europe was appointed distributors for Donaldson Filtration.
