Nyberg was the name of an early American automobile manufacturing company, now defunct. Henry Nyberg of Chicago, Illinois, saw an opportunity in the nascent auto industry and purchased the Rider-Lewis Motor Company of Anderson, Indiana, in 1910. The Nyberg company enlarged operations when it began assembling automobiles. As with most automobiles of the time, manufacture of the Nyberg was very labor-intensive. The cars were made by hand and the Nyberg employees took great pride in their output. The company turned out their first finished car on March 30, 1911. Operations ceased in 1914. The company was sold to A. C. Barley of Streator, Illinois.

Henry Nyberg is also associated with the Regal automobile produced in Berlin, Ontario, from 1915 to 1917.[1]

The related Rider-Lewis Motor Company produced automobiles from 1908 to 1909. The 1909 model produced 30 hp and sold for $1000.[1]
