Gravel plant Massa Bitsch

Unrivaled quality

The highest quality natural raw materials, available by the bucketload. Rocks from the Massa are some of the best mineral construction materials you will find. We use them to create first-rate concrete for the most discerning customers and durable buildings in the whole of Valais.

An all-round success

Thousands of tonnes of that which Switzerland's largest glacier has been grinding, releasing and washing through the Massa gorge to the Rhone valley since time immemorial - that is what Volken Group extracts and sells at this gravel plant located at the entrance to the municipality of Bitsch.

The Aletsch glacier delivers

Due to its round form, this mineral raw material is extremely durable and sought after. Another reason why it is so coveted is that it is rarely found in the area and the canton. Aare granite can only be found in the area surrounding the large Aletsch glacier. It is more resistant, acid-proof and pressure-resistant than other materials extracted in Valais. That is because it contains very little lime and hardly any mica. It is processed into high-quality sand and gravel in Bitsch. The aggregates that result from this process are very well suited to the production of concrete.

One of Volken Group's flagships

For Volken Group, it goes without saying that we deliver the highest quality and serve all customers with the best construction materials. This gravel plant in Upper Valais plays its part by offering construction materials that are perfect all-round.

One valuable load after another

The first-rate extracted gravel makes its way from the conveyor belt to the plant, where it is crushed and washed. After it has been sorted into different piles, it is separated and stored according to size. Volken Group's high-performance commercial vehicles then transport the processed construction materials to their destination.
