For MOTOREX, these include a fascination and passion for technology and for developing new products and solutions, with customer needs always at the focus of our actions. Our article on “Helping Mountain Railways Climb” offers a perfect example of change and continuity. The development of cog railways dates back to the 19th century, but the technology is still used today and has lost nothing of its fascination. What has changed is the requirements for lubrication of the cograil rack. Read what a modern specialized lubricant has to do to keep mountain railways reliably carrying passengers in summer and winter alike. Racing is another area that demands a large helping of fascination and passion for technology. We bring the unique atmosphere of MotoGP a bit closer with a look behind the scenes. In spite of constant change, MOTOREX will continue to focus on customer benefits and on quality products, consultation and services. We’re grateful for the opportunity to share our fascination and thank you for the trust you put in our people every day. I wish you lots of success in your work with MOTOREX products and a good start to the new year.
