Editorial Contents

Editorial Contents Getting ahead means going over the top. The only way to do the impossible is to keep on going when others stop. And no matter where you want to go, the oil to get you there is MOTOREX. “Our Goal: Maximum Customer Satisfaction” Dear customers, partners and employees, The venerable nodding donkey pump that stands before our headquarters nods a cordial greeting to our visitors. Though it never tires, it has never yet brought a single drop of crude from the ground, unfortunately – or perhaps fortunately? MOTOREX would be out of place among giant oil companies. Ethical standards seem to recede the closer one approaches an oil well. Profit has never been our sole aim. As a Swiss family company, we focus on a sustainable future. We earn a respectable profit which we have reinvested for years. Our modern production facilities are safe and state-of-the-art, and our pipelines are securely sealed. Mandatory stockpiling of lubricants was abolished in Switzerland at the end of last year. Stockpiles were depleted as quickly as possible in order to reduce storage costs. Since then, even minor supply problems can lead to delivery shortages — but not at MOTOREX! We have expanded our inventories to 7.5 million liters of base fluid in order to supply you reliably and properly through shortages and fluctuations in the price of oil. See page 7 for more details. The high-performance SWISSCUT ORTHO cutting oils, DPF-compatible LowAsh motor oils and MOTO LINE products are all valuable formulas based on the precious natural resource of petroleum. MOTOREX’s aim has always been and will always be to maximize customer satisfaction, not profits! Peter Regenass-Bucher, Chairman of the Board, BUCHER AG LANGENTHAL Inside What does the future hold for crude oil supplies? One thing is sure: the more economically we manage the “black gold,” the longer it will last. A few thoughts and figures. Motor oil The ACEA classification system for motor oils clearly illustrates the rapidly increasing stringency of emissions standards, which can be achieved only by using the right motor oils.
