In 1912 Flugzeugwerke Gustav Otto (Otto) of Munich founded a branch company Ago (Ago Flugzeugwerke GmbH) in Berlin-Johannisthal[1], originally known as Aerowerke Gustav Otto.[2] Early in the war Ago produced several distinctive twin-boom designs, but they also delivered tractors such as the C.IV.[1] In 1917 Ago went into liquidation.[2]

Ago also built a handful of floatplanes for the German Navy in ones and twos, including some designed from the C.I and C.II.[3]

Production aircraft from the Great War or shortly thereafter include:
