History

Tweddle Group is Owner’s Information. We can bundle an entire digital experience—the app, the touchscreen, the online presence—in an intelligent way, along with user guide—and serve it to customers with contextual awareness. We make Owner’s Information a vital part of the customer’s daily life.

Tweddle Group creates understanding. We stand atop a massive storehouse of technical data, compiled over decades of service to our clients and our clients’ customers.

Tweddle Group combines daredevil spirit with a prophet’s foresight. The result has been one smash hit after another, kind of like Steve Miller Band in the 70s, except we’re a company and also better-looking.

What does Tweddle do? Well, we do lots of things. But our reason for being is simple: Our clients build excellent products, and we make their customers love those products even more.

2015

Tweddle opens Detroit Technology Office

The Tweddle Innovation Team takes over the 8th floor of the Francis Palms building, just across from Comerica Park.

FCA launches the Vehicle User Guide

Vehicle User Guide marks the debut of Tweddle’s In-Vehicle Help application. With it, FCA arrives first-to-market with interactive, center console Owner’s Information.

2011

Tweddle and Toyota Motor Sales launch Entune / Enform Infotainment

Groundbreaking platform brings navigation, telematics and satellite-based information to the cabins of Lexus and Toyota vehicles.

"We're glad to be part of Detroit's technology revolution, there's a critical mass forming around tech in Detroit right now. This move puts us close to our technology partners and the region's best innovators. Detroit is a great city with an amazing culture. We want to participate in its future."
- Ty Beltramo, Chief Innovation Officer

1997-2010

Global expansion

Tweddle Group opens first international offices in China, Italy and Belgium.

Tweddle Group launches first Owner’s Information mobile app

Another first-to-market, this time Jeep Grand Cherokee. This app stands as the first mobile application in North America dedicated to new vehicle technology.

1997

Tweddle expands into technical authoring

With the establishment of new technical authoring departments, Tweddle Group became the only company in the world that could turn raw engineering data into complete Owner’s Information kits. To this day, no other company can match that same, full scope of service.

1970s

Tweddle pilots database management system

Prior to the arrival of database management systems, the auto industry was painfully limited in terms of how often they could create new parts price lists. Database management revolutionized this side of the industry, which boomed as price lists could be updated with greater and greater frequency. Profits increased dramatically thanks to Tweddle’s shrewd, forward-thinking gamble.

1960

Tweddle pilots computerized lithography

It really seemed crazy at the time. Under President Margaret Tweddle, the company replaced hot lead typography—a 19th century technology—with computerized phototypesetting. Why replace a fortune in equipment with something as weird and untested as a bunch of computers? Well, because tomorrow always looks unlikely when seen from the wrong vantage point. This innovation set the stage for Tweddle’s next major breakthrough: database publishing.

1954

Edmund Tweddle establishes Tweddle Litho Company

Edmund opened up shop in Detroit’s eastern suburbs to produce owner manuals for the booming car industry. It’s amazing where some guts, foresight and good sense can take you.
