In 1935, the TOUSSAINT company starts the production of ski wax in Colmar, under the name of Parsenn domain, which is the name of the longest ski slope in the world, and with a graphic identity that is still unchanged : a chamois in a triangle.
His departure for Passy is precipitated by the arrival of the Second World War in France, but the company persists despite the context and resumes the manufacture of wax in 1941.
Between 1960 and the end of 1980, Parsen gave way to the domain name VOLA, more understandable and legible for the international market. They also increased their production considerably, firstly thanks to the arrival of polyethylene ski soles, which required regular waxing, and then thanks to the links forged with Conquest, the Japanese brand. It is this last one that will make VOLA pass the symbolic bar of the million of 24 grams wax bars in one year.
Following these successes, which launched the company, a restructuring is organized in 1995 and the association of VOLA and SOFT CONTROL, a timing equipment company, is officialized. This is the first step of the company towards its development. In 2006, the first VOLA sponsored athlete wins the gold medal in downhill at the Olympic Games, which gives the company credibility.
Almost 100 years after its creation, Vola is present in 31 different countries and has 26 employees. It now markets its own brand of ski helmets, goggles and poles, and imports in France brands such as KV+ and SPM
