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.
