About us - The company Sport Import.
Berlin, 1980. A new trend was making its way from the USA to Germany: BMX. In West Berlin, Michael Müllmann founded California Sports and started to import BMX bikes. Demand was growing. When his source of supply broke down, Michael put all his eggs into one basket. He flew to the USA and came home with the import rights for GT Bicycles. The company’s new name perfectly described its practice and Sport Import GmbH was founded in 1982.
From the very beginning, BMX was more than just a business for Michael. He provided a hub for kids in Berlin in the 80s, centred around their hobby. Michael accompanied them to competitions, sponsored them. Together they even reached the European Championships.
In 1987, Michael moved back home to Lower Saxony.
However, he did not abandon his passion in Berlin but rather successfully expanded Sport Import GmbH to become a trusted partner to the cycling industry. From 1998 to 2017, Felt Bicycles was also an important part of the company’s history.
Alexander Müllmann, who has been part of the company since 2016, joined the management board in 2017. After completing his business studies, he spent two years in England working for Europe’s largest bicycle retailer. Since then, he has been applying his experience of how online retail works to Sport Import in order to make the company even more modern, digital and European.
In 2020, he became the owner of the family company.
Sport Import’s management board is therefore made up of Alexander Müllmann, Michael Müllmann and Ralf Fischer.
