Linden Comansa was a corporation that started manufacturing tool and jig during the early parts of the 1960s. They went by the name "Imausa". The company started out supplying mostly the bigger sub-contractors to the then booming automotive industry
There was a strong industrial expansion in Spain during that same time. This period saw Imausa making more advanced machine tools, jigs and different kinds of tools for both external and in-house use. The company even specialized in making pre-fabricated steel structures especially for industrial buildings.
The company's next and most logical step was into the crane market. The Spanish tourist industry exploded to rapidly become one of the world's largest tourism magnets. This mass expansion of course brought a parallel demand for schools, housing and hospitals among different other things. The company became really busy, really fast.
The first cranes that were manufactured were simple, saddle-jib cranes. They were mainly suited to the building methods at that specific time. The very 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 engineer and design cranes that surpass the 900 metric ton capacity. There is presently manufacturing and design facilities which permit the development and production of more spectacular and even larger machines.
There are several specific advantages provided by the unique Linden 8000 Modular System crane, which made it a logical addition to the range Linden Comansa offered to customers all over the world. These global customers have purchased around 12,000 Linden Comansa cranes in addition to the roughly 6000 equipments manufactured by Linden-Alimak within Sweden. These other cranes were made before the acquisition of the world-wide selling and manufacturing rights of this specific modular system.
