Falko BV was founded in 1983; it originated as a family business, a two-wheeler shop. The company started by selling stickers for pedal-powered and motorised bicycles, for which there was quite a demand at the time. Falko later became an agent in Germany for a Dutch printing company, where it mainly sold transfer stickers to bicycle factories.
Falko broadened its product range extensively after 1992, initially to include locks and then also other products like lighting, bicycle computers and other accessories. The trading with China started during this period when the product range was being expanded. So we now have more than 20 years of experience in importing from China.
China remains Falko’s main import partner, however imports from other Asian and European countries are increasing. Our customers are spread across a variety of European countries. Currently, we mainly sell in the Benelux countries, Germany, Denmark and Sweden.
