TRIPLE swiss CHAMPION In 2013, readers of „auto-illustrierte“ voted us best brand in the lubricants category once again. And just as in 2011 and 2012, MOTOREX is right up there at the top of the podium. It‘s a compliment for which we‘d like to offer our sincere thanks. And an incentive for us to make our engine oil even better. Giving you more protection for your engine, even lower fuel consumption and even fewer emissions. More information at:

That’s something to be proud of. While gathering the first submissions 32 years ago, we found ourselves taken aback at our own audacity. Would we succeed in designing what was then an eight-page publication so people would actually read it? Would we always be able to find things to write about that would interest our customers and be appropriate for MOTOREX? This anniversary issue lays any doubts we may have had then to rest for good. The number of pages has grown to 24, there is more color, and we now reach customers in four languages. The editorial team has a varied palette of subjects to choose from for each issue. We are especially pleased at the high return rate of reply cards – people are actually reading MOTOREX Magazine! Thank you! As a Swiss family company, our commitment to manageable, sustainable growth at home and abroad is inscribed on our green banner. As always, we intend to keep funding our own growth and remain independent, unique, and authentic. But our circumstances have not become easier. There are many factors – the world economy, enormous government debts – that we have no control over. But, fortunately, a business deals with people, and that’s an area where we can do a lot to stand out from the competition, economic difficulties notwithstanding. That’s why we invest in our employees, our customers, and our partners. The satisfaction is mutual, and we are always grateful for every order we receive because it helps us not only hold on to the jobs we already have, but also create new ones. “We know what we want, we know what we’re doing, and we know how to do what we do.” NORDIC 21 Karlshamn Express, Sweden BOX 22 Did you know…/Comic Peter Regenass-Bucher Chairman of the Board, BUCHER AG LANGENTHAL IMPRESSUM Editor: BUCHER AG Langenthal I MOTOREX Lubrication I Bern-Zürich-Strasse 31 I CH-4901 Langenthal I Tel. +41 (0)62 919 75 75 I Fax +41 (0)62 919 75 95 I Customer service by phone.
