Mitchell 1 is a software service provider that has provided repair information to the automotive industry for over 90 years. Originally founded as a private company, Reed Electrical Manuals, the company provided the first specifications and diagrams of vehicle electrical systems to the new motoring public, and the technicians
that would learn to service these new automobiles. Though Mitchell 1
started out as a simple provider of technical information in printed
manuals to the professional technician, it has grown over the years to
become a fully integrated software service provider. Mitchell 1 is
headquartered in Poway, California and is currently 85% held by Snap-on Tools, Inc. and 15% held by NAPA.
