The company Linden Comansa was initially known as "Imausa." During the early 1960s, they started their activities as jig and tool manufacturers. The company began supplying mainly the bigger sub-contractors to the then booming automotive industry
Around that same time, there was a strong industrial expansion within Spain. This period saw Imausa making more advanced machine tools, jigs and other tools for both external and in-house applications. The corporation even specialized in making pre-fabricated steel structures specially for industrial buildings.
Imausa's initiation into the crane market was an almost inevitable if not logical step. The Spanish tourist industry exploded to soon become among the world's largest tourism magnets. This mass expansion of course brought a parallel demand for schools, housing and hospitals among various other things. The corporation became extremely busy, very fast.
The very first simple cranes produced were saddle-jib. These equipments were best suitable for the specific building methods being utilized at that time. The first crane model eventually grew into a variety 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 design and engineer cranes which surpass the 900 metric ton capacity. There is presently manufacturing and design facilities which allow the development and production of more spectacular and even larger machines.
There are some specific benefits offered by the unique Linden 8000 Modular System crane, which made it a logical addition to the range Linden Comansa offered to customers all around the globe. These customers all over the globe have bought approximately 12,000 Linden Comansa cranes in addition to the roughly 6000 equipments made in Sweden by Linden-Alimak. These other cranes were manufactured before the acquisition of the world-wide manufacturing and selling rights of this particular modular system.
