In the mid-2000s, Gunskirchen breaks new ground in the development and production of high-performance engines. The goal is clear: Rotax wishes to continue to play a leading role in innovative powertrain technology in times to come. A significant step towards this goal is the opening of an in-house, on-site innovation and qualifications center on the site in 2010 – the Regional Innovation Center, or RIC for short.
Investment in the RIC cushions the impact of the global economic and financial crisis. From its foundation, the RIC not only drives innovation at Rotax, it is also THE driver of education in the region, guaranteeing training and development for all ages.
