The eleven World or Vice World Championship titles are only the tip of the iceberg: countless titles in other series, national titles and many other excellent results complete the picture. MOTOREX’s commitment to motor sport is about much more than these titles: it is about the continuous improvement to our outstanding products and the benefits this brings for customers – the benefits for you. MOTOREX - Challenge the Limits! “MOTOREX – liquid value in a green barrel” Dear customers, partners and employees, That rolling, rumbling sound is another empty “Swiss-made” barrel being unloaded from a truck onto the slide down to the filling lines in the production cellar. Labeled with the right batch code, it will take just 30 seconds to fill with 200 liters of liquid value. Sealing the barrels is the symbolic crowning touch of the entire production process. It has taken a great deal of thought and hard work from many MOTOREX employees to get this far. Apprentices, workgroups and their supervisors, management and Board of Directors, up to and including the family that owns the company, all have made the MOTOREX philosophy a part of their lives. Exceptional personal dedication runs like a “green” thread through the entire organization. The MOTOREX way doesn’t depend on a casino strategy or on miraculous handouts from the government or some hedge fund. Over 250 people are happy to dedicate a major part of their lives to our company. They don’t just “make money,” they create real value. And our employees are entitled to equal value in return: safe jobs, healthy business growth, proper performance-based pay, dignity and respect and a substantial contribution to a happy existence. That is what we live for and will never cease to strive for!
