CONTENTS EDITORIAL NEWS 4 What’s going on at MOTOREX WHAT’S NEW 6 MOTOREX chemical solutions: systematic all-around protection HYDRAULICS 8 Ecosynt hydraulic oils – power in green: an overview FIT FOR THE FUTURE Dear customers, dear readers REPORT 12 Preparing chainsaws for woodcutting competitions INSIDE 16 Spray production doubles its capacity INDUSTRY 18 High-end medical technology with MOTOREX from A to Z POWERSPORTS 20 Bike Line cooperation with Shimano Europe FOREST 22 With Konrad on the steep slopes In 1944 when Edy Bucher joined the firm of his father, Arnold Bucher, it sold leather- and floor-care products under the REX brand. “Junior” was quick to see the sales potential that the rise of the automobile would bring. Thus REX was appended to the word MOTO so that, as of 1947, the first lubricants were sold under the name MOTOREX. Now, over 70 years later, the MOTOREX brand and the products sold under it are known and sought-after on all continents. The company is still family-owned – currently by the fourth generation. To make the Swiss operation even more efficient and agile, the three Swiss companies active in the MOTOREX-BUCHER group are being amalgamated with effect from January 1, 2021: Thus the parent company and production center BUCHER AG LANGENTHAL (automotive), MOTOREX AG (industry) and MOTOREX-TOPTECH AG (workshop installations) have been merged to form MOTOREX AG. Together with the MOTOREX companies in Germany, Austria, France, Sweden, Poland and the US, they now form MOTOREX-BUCHER GROUP AG. To seize new opportunities in these challenging times, entrepreneurial fitness is more important than ever. An example of this is the MOTOREX protective and hygiene range that we brought out in record time. Perfectly matching our customers’ needs, it combines certified safety with the functionality and reliability that characterize MOTOREX products. There’s also plenty afoot at the moment in the fiercely contested hydraulic fluids segment. On pages 8 to 11 you can read about the solutions that MOTOREX has developed to meet the dauntingly wide range of requirements in this area. And our cooperation with Shimano Europe will undoubtedly meet with astute interest on the part of the cycling community.
