Floyd Clymer™ Publications

We are often asked to clarify what happened to the business known as ‘Floyd Clymer Publications’ after the death of its founder, Floyd Clymer, in 1970.

Shortly after Floyd’s death, the ‘Floyd Clymer Publications’ business name, titles and rights were purchased by Andleer, Inc., a California corporation and, for a number of years following that acquisition, Andleer, Inc. continued to publish and expand their line of repair and service manuals.

In 1987, Andleer, Inc. was sold to Intertec Inc. and, since that date, Intertec has been purchased and/or merged with a number of larger corporations including Primedia (2001), Prism Business Media (2005), Penton Media (2007) and Haynes publishing (2013). In 2018, VelocePress (the registered owner of the Floyd Clymer trademark) assisted Haynes in their application for a Clymer trademark (without the inclusion of Floyd's first name) with a heavy emphasis on digital publications as compared to the VelocePress commitment to publish printed manuals. In 2020, Haynes announced that they were discontinuing their printed manuals to focus on digital-only publications. This decision was a perfect fit for the French company, Infopro Digital, who purchased Haynes within that same year. Both the Haynes and InfoPro digital platform is a ‘business to business’ software program, primarily aimed at professional customers such as service and repair centers.

In 2000,, now a division of Veloce Enterprises, Inc., a Texas corporation, purchased the residual titles and rights to the ‘Floyd Clymer’ manuals. These are the manuals that most ‘do-it-yourself’ mechanics are familiar with. Included in that purchase were the rights to the ‘Auto Topics’ and ‘Cycle’ magazines that were published under Floyd’s ownership. Subsequently in 2005, Veloce Enterprises Inc. purchased the titles and rights to the ‘Clymer Indianapolis Yearbook’ series and associated publications such as the Speedway and Driver histories.

Therefore, if there is a particular ‘Floyd Clymer’ publication that you would like to see reprinted, we encourage you to contact us as the original Clymer publications are the property of Veloce Enterprises, Inc., dba
