Truffer AG offers specialised indoor and outdoor natural stone products for the design and construction sectors.

Using Vals Quartzite extracted from their own quarry, their product portfolio primarily includes layered masonry (natural stone bricks), floor tiles and stone parquet. They also offer various types of cladding, slabs, wall and façade panels, as well as custom-made stone products.

In both the extraction zone and production facilities, the company works with a variety of specialist machines. The quarrying operations are facilitated by the use of a 125-ton Komatsu hydraulic excavator, giant forklifts, diamond wire extraction equipment and advanced drilling machines.

Truffer produces natural stone furnishings in Switzerland.
We offer solutions for interior and exterior designs, including paving, parquet and slabs.
Truffer supplied 10,000m² of layered masonry for the Rocksresort in Laax, Switzerland.
We provided interior floor tiling for the headquarters of Eaton Corporation.
Vals-based Therme Spa was one of our first projects involving Vals quartzite.
Our solutions are suitable for commercial buildings such as high-end boutiques.
One of our previous projects includes the supply of 14,000m² in parquet for the Sechseläuten Plaza in Zürich, Switzerland.
Our primary markets include Benelux countries, Germany and France.

Layered masonry for exterior applications

Truffer AG’s core competence is the production of layered masonry and exterior pavers.

Layered masonry was first supplied for the Therme Spa in Vals, which was completed in 1996. Since then, this type of product has been used in numerous projects. Most notably, the company supplied 10,000m² of layered masonry for the Rocksresort in Laax, Switzerland, and 4,000m² for the US Embassy in Oslo, Norway.

Interior and exterior floor tiles for commercial and residential projects

Truffer AG produces floor tiles for interior and exterior applications in various formats and finishes, ranging from a small bathroom to the headquarters of a multinational corporation.

They supplied floor tiles for many residential projects such as a private villa in Luzern, but also commercial projects, including the headquarters of Eaton Corporation in Cleveland, Ohio, US, and Sky Key in Zürich.

Truffer AG has also provided Vals Quartzite floor tiles for various boutique projects such as Chanel, Zegna and Audemars Piquet.

Stone parquet for exterior paving

Truffer AG has developed stone parquet which represents a modern alternative to the traditional paving.

The precisely cut material allows for an equally precise laying process with minimal joints.

Among others, the company has supplied stone parquet for the 14,000m² Sechseläuten Plaza in Zürich, Switzerland and the 1,500m² Bank für Tirol building in Innsbruck, Austria.
