Linden Comansa was a company that began manufacturing tool and jig in the early 1960s. They went by the name "Imausa". The company started out supplying mainly the larger sub-contractors to the then booming automotive business
Around that same time, there was a strong industrial expansion in Spain. This period saw Imausa making more advanced jigs, machine tools and various kinds of tools for both in-house and external applications. The corporation even specialized in manufacturing pre-fabricated steel structures particularly for industrial buildings.
Imausa's initiation into the crane market was an almost inevitable if not logical step. The Spanish tourist industry exploded to rapidly become among the globe's largest tourism magnets. This mass expansion of course brought a parallel demand for schools, housing and hospitals amongst other things. The corporation became really busy, very fast.
The very first simple cranes produced were saddle-jib. These machinery were best suitable for the specific building methods being used at that time. The first crane model eventually grew into a range of cranes with a capacity ranging from 12 to 42 metric-tons.
By the early 1970s, Linden Comansa saddle-jib cranes had already met the 200 metric-ton barrier. Linden Comansa has surpassed the standard and has continued to engineer and design cranes which surpass the 900 metric ton capacity. There is currently manufacturing and design facilities that permit the production and development of more spectacular and even larger machines.
There are several particular advantages provided by the unique Linden 8000 Modular System crane, that made it a logical addition to the range Linden Comansa provided to customers all around the world. These customers all around the globe have purchased approximately 12,000 Linden Comansa cranes in addition to the roughly 6000 machines made in Sweden by Linden-Alimak. These other cranes were manufactured before the acquisition of the world-wide selling and manufacturing rights of this particular modular system.
