Once here I was immediately taken under the wing of my father-in-law, Edi Bucher. For several years we shared an office in the 1944 two-story company building. It was an exciting but also very strict classroom. I received vigorous support from my wife Monique, who was already working at the company. One year earlier MOTOREX, with 52 employees including 20 traveling salespeople, had celebrated its 60 th anniversary. Corporate management was in the hands of the second and third generations of the proprietor family, and for years I had the privilege of contributing to the company’s gratifying growth at home and abroad. In 2003 Edi Fischer joined our company, and four years later we entrusted him with the role of CEO of the corporate group. Under his leadership the MOTOREX family has steadily grown to over 400 hardworking employees worldwide today. We have created new jobs, acquired neighboring plots of land, and built several new buildings. The number of our export distributors around the world has grown to over 130 in 85 countries. We have established subsidiaries and production facilities in France, Austria, Germany, Poland, and the United States. The proprietor family is very grateful to everyone involved on the MOTOREX team.

Now that I’m retired and on the back bench, it always makes me happy when I can occasionally spend an afternoon at MOTOREX marveling at the latest accomplishments.
