Deutz AG is a German
engine manufacturer. The company was founded in 1848
as N. A. Otto & Cie by Nikolaus
Otto, inventor of the four-stroke internal combustion
engine. Other famous
names who worked for Deutz in the past are Eugen Langen,
Gottlieb Daimler, Wilhelm Maybach, Prosper L'Orange and
Ettore Bugatti. In the early years, neither Otto nor
his partner, lawyer Eugen Langen, were interested in
automobiles, only stationary engines. In the middle 1870s,
technical director Gottlieb Daimler, agitating for production
of automobiles, was transferred to the company's St.
Petersburg factory to reduce his influence. He resigned,
taking Wilhelm Maybach with him.
