In the early 1990s, Rotax is the largest employer in the Wels-Land district. It reduces its manufacturing range in favor of specialization in the core competencies of engine construction and assembly. By now, around 1,000 employees are working at the Gunskirchen site on engine development, assembly and the manufacture of key parts such as crankshafts and cylinders. Regionally strong, internationally significant. The company’s export rate of 95 percent means that Rotax engines go overseas every day. The management in Gunskirchen prioritizes innovation and R&D. Rotax perfects the manufacture of powerful and innovative engines. Collaboration is developed with BMW, and intensified with Aprilia in Italy, and new points of focus emerge, such as sustainability and environmental friendliness. There is a strong will to achieve further advancement.
