Spies Hecker 2019 calendar

Out Of The Dark is the new Spies Hecker 2019 calendar. The twelve striking images all play on light and shadow. They were created by the Dutch photographic studio, van der Vaart together with photographers from five countries and showcase exceptional painting and restoration work, all shot in the bodyshops in which the vehicles were restored.

RSP from Saalfeld, Germany, has been producing suction dredgers for civil engineering applications for 25 years. These are used on construction sites to extract debris and soil with a large bore hose around sensitive pipeline systems. The paint for these gentle giants has to be particularly robust, so RSP uses the Spies Hecker Permafleet system, which is formulated for commercial vehicles. The excavators are initially assembled, uncoated, after ordering. Once the customer has accepted the order, they are disassembled and then painted, sometimes in unusual company colours, as the model in pink featured in September shows.

“The lighting effects and the wide range of vehicles really makes the 2019 Spies Hecker calendar very special. All the images highlight the skill and passion with which painters worldwide use our products,” says Joachim Hinz, Spies Hecker Brand Manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

A 1957 Fiat 103 and a 1960 Mack Truck also feature in the latest Spies Hecker calendar.
