About Haynes

Haynes Publishing Group – worldwide leader.

Haynes Publishing Group, is the worldwide market leader in the production, publication and sale of automotive and motorcycle repair manuals. Floated on the London Stock Exchange in 1979, Haynes serves two distinct markets – the DIY customer through its Owners Workshop Manual and the automotive professional repair market through HaynesPro.

All manuals reflect the same ‘hands on’ and personal approach.  The in-house Haynes team takes extensive photographs and notes, describing the process, whilst also telling the truth about how hard or easy the full procedure is.  For a car manual, it takes three to six months from the start of a project, to the final publication.   Writing the text alone takes 20 to 30 man weeks.

The manuals have made a huge difference to our teaching and workshop operations.  We now have information at our fingertips for the vast majority of cars we work on.  We are very thankful that Mr. J. Haynes himself, took an interest in the work of MfA. Thanks, Haynes!
