COLASIT AG was on the way to becoming an international byword when the founder and head of the company died suddenly in 1955. Due to this twist of fate and the saturated market, the company was forced to develop new products. The former authorised representative, Fritz Studer, was entrusted to lead the company and decides to expand the company into the ventilation systems sector and to drive it forward.

Werner Bollinger founds COLASIT AG in Wimmis in the Bernese Oberland. During the Second World War, the company produces activated carbon and special coal, which was a scarce commodity at the time. After the end of the war, competitive pressures increase, forcing the company to develop a new device that uses surplus special coal. This new development, a filter system with an activated carbon filling, is used to neutralise poisonous nitrous gases that are produced when pickling and bright dipping non-ferrous metals. It can be sold and supplied to numerous galvanising companies in various countries around the world.
