We intend to stick to our philosophy that everything we do centers around our customers’ needs. Our products have to prove their worth right at the cutting edge, and under the toughest conditions. Customers expect top performance and quality in a wide variety of disciplines, ranging from agricultural machinery that has to start up and be ready for action at the first attempt after a hard winter, through winter service vehicles that have to clear roads in sub-zero temperatures, to those vital seconds that make all the difference between victory and defeat in motor sports. MOTOREX delivers reliability wherever reliability counts. This is one of the main reasons we have expanded our laboratory, are building a new production and office complex and are constantly developing new products that will enable us to retain our national and international competitiveness. Our passion for discovering the new has made us strong, and will keep us strong in the future. Now new challenges await us, and we look forward to facing them with you and our partners. MOTOREX’s second century has already begun. We would be delighted if you were to accompany us on our journey, continue to rely on us 100 % and help us break new ground. On that note, I hope you enjoy reading this issue.
