Editorial Contents ...simply perfect! BUCHER AG LANGENTHAL, MOTOREX Lubrication CH-4901 Langenthal, Dear readers, Today we are celebrating a special occasion: this is the 70th edition of the MOTOREX magazine. When we printed our first edition in June 1981, we were worried that we would run out of interesting subjects for our magazine. Now, 22 years later, we can still find plenty to say about many different subjects. Now in its third generation, MOTOREX is proud to be a Swiss family run corporation. We do not view tradition and progress as contradictory, but as a challenge that has lasted 86 years. We have created over 215 jobs and are still brimful with enthusiasm and energy. Each day we renew our efforts with the aim of sustaining our autonomy and, more importantly, of serving you – our customers at home and abroad. We continue to live out the pioneering vision of our forebearers, and strive to create an even better company. In this anniversary issue we will be showing you how tradition nurtures progress. After presenting our environmental policy in the last issue, this time we’ll be introducing you to MOTOREX’s corporate philosophy. Have you already heard about our latest LongLife motor oils with inhouse approvals? Do you know how MOTOREX products are used to whirl screw threads? MOTOREX is not old-fashioned in business. We are a family business which enjoys working and growing with you to discover new, innovative products and services. After all, you have always been the starting point of our success – and we want to thank you for that! Innovation is the spark in the engine of the economy.
