Founded by Dr. Ing. M. Gabriel, an Austrian. Ernst Heinkel, chief designer, beginning 1913, of 2-seat biplanes (early 1914, Henkel goes to Brandenburgische Flugzeug-werke); team under Dipl.-Ing. Robert Thielen produced 1-seat fighters.

Antoinettes under license, then many recon and fighter biplanes. More than 10,300 were produced by 1918 with several companies participating.

Albatros-Gesellschaft fur Flugzeugunternehmungen GmbH (Albatros-Flugzeugwerke GmbH) formed 1925.

(There was likely an "Austro-Hungarian subsidiary" of this latter firm. In Patent HU-1914-68002, accessed via the Szellemi Tulajdon Nemzeti Hivatala database in anglophone setting, we have "Österr. Ungar. Albatros-Flugzeugwerke G. m. b. H.".)
