Our history

Nowadays Fiyo reaches out to millions of people throughout Europe. People in need of repair, maintenance or improving their appliances. But once back in 1978 it all started in a small store in the Netherlands with the ambition to help out others with the repair of their home appliances.

The new warehouse of Fiyo

Move to new warehouse

At the end of 2019 our goods were moved to a renewed, state-of-the-art warehouse. We want to keep the promise to deliver the right product on time at your doorstep. With this highly automated warehouse system we can ensure faster delivery times, few to no mistakes and efficient use of space as our assortment is rapidly expanding. It’s a leap forward into committing to our customers and keeping our promises.

Rebranding of Fiyo

Rebranding to Fiyo

To become a brand we needed to search for unity in our European stores which were until then locally named. It also made us think about what we’re doing and especially why we’re doing it. Are we just in business to sell products or is there more to it? If we look back in our history path we’ve always tried to empower our customers to repair, maintain and upgrade their appliances themselves. That has driven us throughout our journey. So, that's what we’re set out to do. We believe you can get more out of your appliances.
