SPECIAL VEHICLES AT SPEVEMAT, FAY-SUR-LIGNON, FRANCE

The Spévémat shop in Fay-sur-Lignon, 50 km East of Le Puy-en-Velay, Haute Loire, France, is specialized in off-road vehicles, particularly snow-vehicles. Robin Picq was selling combine harvesters and found it would be more interesting to turn to unusual vehicles, tracked or wheeled : mountain tractors, tracked personnel carriers, groomers, snow-blowers, municipal vehicles.  In 2007, he created this repair and renovation shop of special vehicles, as we find few here. It has 3 employees.
Its specialty is mainly the tracked vehicles which it ensures the purchase / sale, the renovation and the maintenance. He also does personalized research, rental with chauffeur to movies, wind turbine installations, hard-to-reach sites. The famous Hägglunds BV206, coming from military surplus, is sold, in particular to the firemen of Mont St Michel and Haute-Corse. Its own Hägglunds BV206D is the only homologated on road with gray card in France.
After an appointment, the author went to the garage and was able to see the vehicles and take pictures. That the Director and those present be thanked for having spent their time with him.

Robin Pick recently represents the brand Jarcrac Forest Finland Oy, a forestry vehicle manufacturer.
