Oro Werke of Brandenberg ("Oro Works", Orobr), was a tinplate toy company operating out of Germany from about ~1910 to the company's dissolution in 1931.

The lithographed artwork on Oro's pieces tended to be less "heavy" than Bing's and Marklin, with more use of brighter solid colours.

The company foundered in 1931 as one of the many victims of the German economic recession, and parts of the works were taken over by Greppert & Kelch ("G & K", "Gundka")
