The tower crane manufacturer, after many years of using the Linden Comansa brand name, has decided to return to its original name: Comansa. This change will apply across the full range of products and at the company’s headquarters in Spain as well as in the United States and China.
As a result, cranes manufactured in Pamplona, previously marked under the Linden Comansa brand, and cranes manufactured in Hangzhou, China distributed under the name Comansa CM, will be know from now on as Comansa.
“The Linden brand and system, and all they entail, are part of our DNA. In fact, Comansa is the only manufacturer whose range of horizontal jib cranes consists solely of flat-top, pendant-free design, which was undoubtedly one of Linden’s most outstanding features. And, if there is one think that characterises Comansa cranes, it is their outstanding modularity, just like Linden cranes. That is why Linden is still very much a part of the philosophy of all our products, even though it no longer appears in our brand name,” explains Alberto Munárriz, CEO of Comansa.
The construction company Gabay Group has become the exclusive dealer of Linden Comansa in Israel. The two companies signed a three-year contract in March 2018, after Linden Comansa’s 16LC220 tower crane received the approval from the Standards Institute of Israel.
The agreement between the Gabay Group and Linden Comansa includes the immediate purchase of three tower cranes model 16LC220 12t, as well as the purchase of other cranes in the course of 2018 to achieve the objective stated in the contract. These three cranes, that will be part of Gabay Group’s fleet, will have their first job at the construction of the residential complex Hadar ve Yosef in Tel Aviv.
Established in the late 1980s, Gabay Group is one of Israel’s leading construction and real estate companies. Becoming the exclusive dealer of Comansa in Israel is part of the plan to expand its business and enter the tower crane market in both sales and rental.
