By our 19th anniversary in July, we will have come a long way. When Drew Technologies started, it was a one person company with just Mike Drew consulting to car companies. At that time, OBD2 had just been rolled out on 1996 model year cars and a “high-speed” vehicle bus was running at 10.4 Kbps.
Over the years we have been at the forefront of many changes in vehicle technology and have played a key role in the way diagnostic products are delivered to technicians. As a company, we have carefully but consistently grown to become a global supplier of essential diagnostic tools to car companies and the aftermarket.
Just last year alone:
- Our engineering team developed several new products including the market-leading California certified vehicle inspection tool and the Motor Magazine Top 20 winning Mongoose interface.
- Our support team responded to over 14,000 calls without compromising the personal attention and care that gave us a #1 customer satisfaction rank in a recent ETI survey.
- Our production team shipped over 30,000 products while maintaining industry leading quality.
Today, we begin the next chapter by joining the Opus Group. Drew Technologies believes this strategic move will help us continue to grow and expand our capabilities allowing us to broaden our markets and execute even larger programs. Opus recognized the value that Drew Technologies expertise in vehicle communications and OBD experience will bring to the group. Drew Technologies will continue to run as a separate company, preserving our focus on our existing markets and customers while providing a broad base of support for new and exciting opportunities through collaboration with Opus.
While the ownership is changing today at Drew Technologies, the team and company mission are not. Drew Technologies will continue to press forward delivering OE diagnostics solutions to car dealerships and the aftermarket. All of the Drew Technologies senior management is staying because we have a passion for what we do.
We look forward to an exciting future as part of the Opus Group.
