Editorial Contents 50+ CONSECUTIVE VICTORIES! For 53 AMA Superbike races, the Rockstar Makita Suzuki Racing Team had remained unbeaten. This historical series of victories was only achievable by using the best materials available. In all of these races, the team used MOTOREX motor oils. Is there better documentation of the unrivalled performance and quality of MOTOREX oils? MOTOREX. Challenge the Limits. A big thank you! “Worldly good is ebb and flow.” That proverb hangs in the meeting room where our patron, Edy Bucher, has conducted board meetings for so many years. His father, company founder Arnold Bucher, instilled this philosophy into his son. Edy Bucher joined Bucher & Cie. of Langenthal in 1944, when he was just 20 years old. The significance of “ebb” was firmly brought home to him both in the office and while cycling out to meet customers. At that time, Switzerland was surrounded by warring nations and production had to close down because of a dearth of raw materials. And even after the war ended in 1945, shortages meant that the travelling salesman was still not able to fully resume his tour of duty in the company vehicle – a van that had been converted to run on charcoal. The little team had to struggle to keep the firm alive from day to day. The years of deprivation and turmoil left their mark on the young Edy Bucher, adding that extra steel and entrepreneurial spirit. To this day, he is known as a businessman who brings to his work a mix of judicious risk-taking and healthy caution. “Who dares wins”. That too is a motto which has guided the man who was owner and CEO of MOTOREX for 47 years. Even since Edy Bucher left the operational side of the business, he has continued to provide strategic input at the meetings of the Board of Directors, from which he is due to retire at the end of April 2009. Our MOTOREX brand, our entry into the lubricants business, the green colour of the MOTOREX barrel, a willingness to invest consistently in high-quality staff, in buildings and equipment and in publicity were milestones along Edy Bucher’s road to success. To the extent that our company has received acclaim from various quarters as a “jewel in the crown of Swiss industry”. That is a compliment that should be addressed first and foremost to our Edy himself. All of us in the MOTOREX family would like to thank him for devoting such a large part of his life to the success of our company. We will do our utmost to ensure that it remains a beacon of success in the world of engineering.
