Uro (Spanish for "aurochs") is a Galician (Spain) brand of all-wheel-drive and military trucks, based in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

The Uro parent company, UROVESA, was started in 1981 by a group of ex-IPV employees. They quickly established themselves as a leading player in the 4x4 rural fire-fighting and Spanish construction truck markets.

From 1984 on, they became a certified provider to the Spanish Army, which currently operates more of a thousand of Uro vehicles, including the well-known URO VAMTAC (Vehículo de Alta Movilidad Táctico / High Mobility Tactical Vehicle), equipped with a 190hp Steyr diesel engine, while most of the other Uro ranges feature Iveco engines. The truck's design is based on the American designed Hummer/Humvee.

In a deal worth 200 million euros. the Royal Moroccan Army (FAR) has ordered 1200 VAMTACs as well as 800 Iveco trucks.[citation (source) needed]

Since 1991, an Urovesa subsidiary, Uromac, produces in their factory at Castropol, Spain a range of small dumpers and off-road forklifts, which are also used by the Spanish Army.
