It was as long ago as 1917 that the pioneer Arnold Bucher began manufacturing the leather and floor cleaning agent REX in Bützberg near Langenthal. With the increasing development of motor vehicles there was a shift in business operations and in 1947, REX became MOTOREX.

The BUCHER-MOTOREX Group continues to operate as an independent family business – something in which we take great pride. Our employees feel respected and appreciated and this is an attitude they themselves embrace in practice.

The group of companies consists of the following:

  • BUCHER AG LANGENTHAL, the parent company responsible for development, production and sales of lubricants, care and cleaning products under the MOTOREX brand
  • MOTOREX AG LANGENTHAL, specialising in industrial lubricants
  • MOTOREX-TOPTECH AG dedicated to the sale and installation of workshop equipment

International growth

MOTOREX is growing both in Switzerland and internationally: in 2016, half of its lubricant output was sold outside Switzerland. This is possible due to our 130 sales partners, who contribute their product and industry expertise in 85 countries, as well as our own sales organisations in Switzerland, France, Germany, Austria and Sweden.
