Production volumes increase and, due to its focus on engine production, initial orders from the agricultural sector and partnerships with manufacturers in the motorcycle/moped sector, Rotax achieves steady growth. Investment in the Gunskirchen premises also brings success. The company supports the local school by supplying a boiler for boiler makers Reisner u. Wolff to assemble. From 07/19/1953, therefore, the school has heating. The management sets up the Gemeinnützige Rotax-Werk-Wohnbaugesellschaft (non-profit housing association) and the first company apartments are built.
