The company Linden Comansa was initially referred to as "Imausa." During the early parts of the 1960s, they began their activities as tool and jig makers. The company began supplying mainly the bigger 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 machine tools, jigs and various kinds of tools for both external and in-house use. Furthermore, the company 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 business exploded to rapidly become one of the biggest tourism magnets within the globe. This mass expansion of course brought a parallel demand for housing, hospitals and schools amongst various other things. The company became really busy, very fast.
The first cranes that were produced were simple, saddle-jib cranes. They were mostly suitable to the building methods at that particular 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 engineer and design cranes which surpass the 900 metric ton capacity. There is currently design and manufacturing facilities that allow the development and production of more incredible and even bigger machinery.
There are several specific benefits provided by the unique Linden 8000 Modular System crane, which made it a logical addition to the range Linden Comansa provided to customers all over the globe. These global customers have bought about 12,000 Linden Comansa cranes in addition to the roughly 6000 equipments manufactured by Linden-Alimak in Sweden. These other cranes were manufactured prior to the acquisition of the world-wide selling and manufacturing rights of this specific modular system.
