Linden Comansa was a company that started making jig and tool in the early parts of the 1960s. They went by the name "Imausa". The company began supplying mainly the larger sub-contractors to the then booming automotive industry
There was a strong industrial expansion within Spain during that same time. This period saw Imausa making more advanced jigs, machine tools and different kinds of tools for both in-house and external applications. Moreover, the corporation specialized in making pre-fabricated steel structures particularly for industrial buildings.
The company's next and most logical step was into the crane market. The Spanish tourist business exploded to rapidly become among the largest tourism magnets in the globe. This mass expansion of course brought a parallel demand for hospitals, schools and housing among other things. The corporation became extremely busy, very fast.
The first simple cranes produced were saddle-jib. These machinery were best suited for the specific building methods being utilized during that time. The first crane model eventually grew into a range of cranes with a capacity ranging from 12 to 42 metric-tons.
Linden Comansa saddle-jib cranes had already met the 200 metric-ton barrier by the early 1970s. Linden Comansa has surpassed the standard and has continued to design and engineer cranes that exceed the 900 metric ton capacity. There is presently manufacturing and design facilities that permit the development and production of even larger and more incredible machines.
There are some specific advantages offered by the unique Linden 8000 Modular System crane, that made it a logical addition to the range Linden Comansa offered to customers all around the globe. These global customers have bought roughly 12,000 Linden Comansa cranes in addition to the approximately 6000 machines made by Linden-Alimak in Sweden. These various other cranes were made prior to the acquisition of the world-wide selling and manufacturing rights of this specific modular system.
