Ever since our foundation back in 2000, we at DIMOCO have believed in talents, goals and personal achievements. Values that have made our phenomenal growth possible.
It all started nearly 20 years ago as a small family-run business, which then grew into to a recognized global messaging and payment provider, realizing the dream of two brothers who started with not much more than a goal and a vision.
We are proud that many talents have grown their professional career at DIMOCO over the years during our growth. Our success makes it possible to help the athletes we sponsor to pursue their sports career and passion.
May 2020: Harald Bierbaumer triumphant at RAN (Race around Niederösterreich)
In this race the athlete faced the solo challenge. However, an ultra-bike race is not an individual sport, but can only be mastered with the help of a team and DIMOCO was delighted to support by being a sponsor. After 25 hours and 13 minutes on his bike – only interrupted twice by a 10-minute power nap – and through all types of weather from sun to sleet showers as well as low temperatures around 1° he finally crossed the finish line.
October 2020: Judoka Lukas Reiter scored 7th place in Grand Slam Budapest tournament
Did you know that a Grand Slam competition class is only exceeded by the Olympics and the World Cup? Lukas sustained a back injury in the first fight and was only able to continue with painkillers, which makes his performance all the more remarkable. This outstanding achievement marks one of his highlights in his outstanding sports-career.
August 2020: DIMOCO Cycling Team finishes toughest European bike race
One year of planning and preparation, heat and headwinds in Lower Austria and Burgenland, storms in Styria, incredibly steep climbs in western Austria. Numerous challenges had to be mastered as a team during the four “Race Around Austria” days. We are particularly proud that our sponsored athletes were among the finishers, given a drop out rate of 50% in the category two-persons team in 2019.
Congratulations on this simply outstanding performance!
July 2020: a great performance is always worth while
Due to the fabulous sportive achievements based on the incredible discipline and hard training the judoka Lukas Reiter has shown, DIMOCO extended its sponsorship agreement to July 2021.
Gerald Tauchner was delighted to share the good news with the young athlete.
March 2020: no pain, no gain – preparation for the Race Around Austria
Harald Bierbaumer and Armin Bieber managed to kick in a training week in Spain in preparation for their participation in the “Race Around Austria” in August 2020 just before the Covid-19 lockdown struck.
They will tackle 2,200 km around Austrian, overcoming 33,000 m difference in altitude, all in 3.5 days and we from DIMOCO will support their top athletic performance. Feeling the challenge?
August 2019: a proud CEO welcomes a proud athlete
After Lukas returned form the Minsk European Open 2018, he visited DIMOCO Corporate Headquarters to meet Gerald Tauchner and present his medal.
We at DIMOCO have won numerous awards for Direct Carrier Billing achievements but admittedly it has been the first sports medal we’ve been proud to welcome in our office!
July 2019: Lukas Reiter triumphs in Minsk. Olympics 2020 – here we come!
We are thrilled to share that the Austrian judoka Lukas Reiter and his team scored a bronze medal at the Minsk European Open 2018 tournament.
The then 23-year old took a huge step towards the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo as the mixed team competition will also be held at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
December 2018: Harald Bierbaumer completes IRONMAN
Harald Bierbaumer, a family father with a demanding career and a triathlete whom DIMOCO sponsors, trains every day three to four hours. Yes, every day, if the day hasn’t enough hours then at night. In December 2018 he took the ultimate challenge and participated the IRONMAN 70.3 Bahrain, a 1.9 km swim, a 90 km bike ride and a 21.1 km run.
“The path from a vision to success does exist and is indeed tangible.
Since I founded DIMOCO back in 2000 together with my brother, our company transformed and grew. We went from a small family business to an international payment and messaging industry leader, performing hundreds of millions of transactions across the globe. A rewarding journey that I wholeheartedly want to share with others. Therefore, we at DIMOCO are a very proud sponsor of unique Austrian sportsmen.”
