Universal oil with unique properties
BALLISTOL - The brand for man. Animal. Technology.
As early as 1874, the lawyer Wilhelm Klever founded the chemical factory F.W. Klever in Cologne. He produced oils and fats on a coal basis and with the acquisition of a mine he was soon able to supply himself with the raw materials.
Around the turn of the century, the imperial army demanded an oil with special properties: it should be suitable for all components and materials of a weapon. The focus was on cleaning, care and maintenance of metal parts, wooden stocks and leather belts. In addition, it was to serve as wound oil for the soldiers in the field in case of various injuries.
Hard to believe, but true - in 1904, Dr. Helmut Klever, son of the company owner, developed exactly this oil. The chemistry lecturer combined all the desired properties in a single product. The miracle product was given the name "Ballistol", composed of the words "ballistics" and the Latin "oleum" - meaning oil. One year later, the German Army could look forward to the first deliveries of BALLISTOL Universalöl. The oil delivered everything it promised and was quickly dubbed the "miracle oil".
Millions of people enjoyed BALLISTOL Universal Oil in the years to come and kept discovering new areas of application. Only the factory in Leverkusen survived the Second World War. Dr. Heinrich Zettler joined the company in 1971 and took over the management. He managed the company until 2006, when he handed over BALLISTOL GmbH to his sons Dr Christian and Andreas Zettler.
