Company portrait 4row

The company 4row GmbH was founded in March 2010 in Richterswil (Switzerland).

Our slogan is:
Together we move the rowing sport

Everything the rower need to row, ordered from a supplier conveniently on the Internet.

As an active rower or coach, we were constantly confronted with the situation that we had to organize all the material, such as new rails, rolls, etc., from different suppliers. This was sometimes complicated. Various calls to suppliers and manufacturers were needed until everything had been collected. Our own consumer behavior and the fact that there was no online store in Switzerland, motivated us to create this online shop for all rowers in Switzerland.

Since we received requests from Germany again and again, we decided in 2016 to create a new online shop, which should appeal to customers from Germany and other countries in the EU, but due to the fast growing order volume, we had to open a new storage in Berlin. For this reason we founded the 4row GmbH & Co. KG in Berlin in 2017. Since May 2017, we now have our additional warehouse at Müggelseedamm in Berlin. 

Management: Adrian Schmid & Alexander Wüst
