German term or phrase: S.O.
as in "ATV&Quad S.O. GmbH"

In this case, does "S.O." mean "see oben" or does "S.O." refer to a type of company (ATV&Quad something something Ltd)?

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

English translation:S.O.
Explanation:
As this is in the middle of what is obviously a company name (i.e. is part of the company's name), I would leave it as it is. I never translate company names unless the client specifically asks what the name means. And in that case I would ask the client to get me the meaning of the abbreviation.
