About us

BALLISTOL has been produced and sold worldwide for more than four generations and is still manufactured in Germany
using the original recipe of 1904. Originally developed for the imperial army as a weapon and maintenance oil.

Company history:
In 1874, Friedrich Wilhelm Klever founded the ‘Chemical Factory F.W. KLEVER’ in Cologne. He began with the production of oils and fats based on
coal and purchased a mine in order to be independent of raw material deliveries. Around the turn of the 20th century, the imperial army needed an universal oil that
would maintain and preserve metal parts, wooden stocks and leather. Simultaneously, it had to serve as a wound oil for injuries, lacerations and bruises. In 1904,
Dr. Helmut Klever, the son of the company founder, successfully formulated this special oil. It soon became obvious that this new “ballistic oil” had truly amazing
capabilities, and in 1905 the Imperial Army tested and adopted Ballistol, which stayed in use until 1945. It became known as a “miracle oil” with surprising
properties and a synonym for quality.
