The German "Berliner Motorwagen Fabrik" started car production under the name ORYX in 1907.

The first ORYX car had a 1555 ccm 4-cylinder engine and the radiator showed a round emblem. The factory merged with Duerkopp in 1909 but ORYX built cars under their own name after that with a kidney-shaped radiator emblem.

There was also a light commercial vehicle called Eryx. It is doubtful whether there was car production after WWI. It is thought that less than 600 cars were built.
