Spies Hecker has been named Paint Brand of the Year by the Irish Auto Trade Awards 2018. The specially designed trophy was presented to David Dempsey, Vehicle Refinish Sales Manager at Crown Paints Ireland – Spies Hecker distributor to the Irish market - at the awards ceremony which took place at Carton House in County Kildare, Ireland, on 26 October 2017.
Spies Hecker beat strong competition from five other well-established paint brands to take the title of Paint Brand of the Year for 2018 in the Bodyshop Awards category.
Joachim Hinz, Spies Hecker Brand Manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, says, “Spies Hecker has a long history of working closely with its industry partners, from its distributors to its network of bodyshops across Europe. Winning an award like this, which is voted for by the people who work first hand with our products and services, is a great honour. We will endeavour to continue to meet their high expectations.”
The awards, which are organised by Ireland’s largest automotive trade publisher, Automotive Publications, are in their fourth successful year and aim to identify the best operators in all sectors of the Irish automotive aftermarket. Categories include Bodyshop, HCV/LCV, Tyre Trade and Workshop awards. Visitors to all of Automotive Publications’ websites voted, and six nominees were shortlisted in each category. A second round of online voting then took place to select the winners.
