Haynes Publishing Group celebrates 40 years as a listed company

For close to 60 years Haynes manuals have supplied independent automotive expertise and practical knowledge to motorists. More recently, through HaynesPro and OATS, we also serve the professional automotive aftermarket and lubricants industry via our market-leading solutions ‘WorkshopData’ and ‘FUSiON Portal’.

Our experience has given Haynes a deep understanding of our partners evolving needs in the markets in which we operate. Through our programme of product innovation, integration and growing data coverage, we have cemented the Haynes Group as a leading global transport content, data and workflow solutions business.

Our eponymous manuals provide clear, practical and useful information that empower motorists and bikers with the information they need to understand, maintain and repair their vehicles. The information is delivered via both print manuals and digital channels. Haynes also publish brand extension manuals covering a wide range of practical and transport subjects, and has a growing list of over 400 titles.

HaynesPro’s ‘WorkshopData’ database supports over 60,000 professional end users and contains a vast amount of multilingual identification, repair, diagnostic and maintenance information for cars, light commercial vehicles and heavy trucks. OATS is a leading global provider of data solutions and expertise to the lubricants industry, with a product team that provide a full software as a service capability to leading oil companies.

Founded in 1960 and listed on the London Stock Exchange in December 1979, Haynes now employs over 300 people worldwide, with 10 offices in the US, Europe and Australia.

Over 200 million of our iconic manuals have been sold globally since the company’s inception, and last year HaynesPro received over 1 billion data requests.

J Haynes, CEO of Haynes Publishing Group said: “My father founded and built Haynes by providing highly visual, accurate and inherently practical information for drivers. These values remain at the heart of what we do, and have enabled Haynes to successfully transition during the past ten years. Today, in addition to publishing our trusted iconic Haynes manuals, we are a leading supplier of digital content, data and workflow solutions for the automotive aftermarket and oil companies around the world.

In celebrating this anniversary, I would like to thank all our staff, customers, partners and shareholders who have contributed to Haynes’s success.”
